My new C&C Solo Seat. I like. It's comfortable in spite of the way it looks....a little sparse in the padding. This is not a touring bike. This is my around town and local trip bike. It works!

You said what I was thinking! Americana. That's why I love small towns and their back alleys or main streets for that matter.

I'm really easy going Nate. I don't take offense easily (none here to begin with). What appeals to one person is trashed by another. I know what I like and think there are others that may like the same thing too. That's why I post, thinking someone like minded may say, "neat". That's what I do when looking at other photographers work. Americana is neat all by itself. Interject a bike and now it's something new. There's a cool contrast between the old and run down with a shiny two wheel machine.

Sounds like my kind of town. We lost our bowling alley about a year ago.
Love all the pics, and the commentary is right on.
Thanks

You're welcome! Before I ever had a bike (last year), I would drive to these small towns looking for this kind of subject to photograph. Small town America. I love it! Rog~

I was out today again. I'm on vacation. This one is taken in Shakopee, Minnesota. An old river town.
