Self-indulgent new old bike...

Sometimes the combination of bike, price, and size is just too tempting to pass up. I met the original owner of a nice 1988 fillet-brazed Otis Guy over the hill in Petaluma yesterday and came home with his bike that he's owned for 21 years. It will be a nice addition to the collection of bikes here and is a nice representation of a Marin County builder.

Pretty much everything is original except, seat, tires, rims, and pedals.

Buffalo head nickel brazed into the top of the stem cap. 1928 is the date.
