South End Simplicity
This is perhaps the most elegant stripped-down beautiful basic bike I've seen. While I personally like my bikes with brakes, this isn't my bike, and the aesthetic is just wonderful from the cream tires to the black frame to the custom leather accents.
This custom leather-accented U-lock is perfectly matched to the saddle.
My husband thinks the saddle came this way, I think that the owner carved off the skirt his/herself. The hammered rivets look lovely on this bike.
The inherent classiness of this bike is eye-catching from behind...
... and from the front.
Bravo to the person who put this bike together, it's beautiful!
