He'd need helium balloons.

This set of bike racks has form, it's where I snapped a unicycle last year.

Could it be functioning as a makeshift luggage support? Or perhaps as a handle for lifting it on to the roof of a car, or wherever?

I was thinking about a child seat on a rear rack. There are two brazed bits above the rear caliper that are probably there for such a rack.

I did wonder whether it was so the stoker and pilot could swap roles and keep using their own saddles.

Would be my guess.  Though the lack of tape or plugs suggests that hasn't happened for a while.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

This saddle was my all round favourite when I was racing in the late 80's, early 90's. I tried one recently, it was horrible. Either they are not what they used to be, or my bum has changed of shape in the mean time :(

I've always used a Turbo and still do. I did buy a Rolls to try but didn't like it.

Rapid, Made in France


Those brakes look quite bulky


Altenburger Synchron dual pivot brakes


Edit: I've just noticed there's a rear rack, but it doesn't seem to be attached to the seatstays but to the mudguard.

I've used one on at least 1 bike since the 90's and havent noticed any change.  The price put me off buying for 2 of my newer bikes last year. I guess I can get on OK with different saddles.

That chain/lock is wishful thinking at best.
