Spotted in Wells next the Sea. Appears to be a Schwinn Stingray Chopper, modified or a custom job?
Front brake seemed to be for decorative purposes only; rider used feet to slow and brake for junction.

Same reason as for some motorbike rigs. Looking cool while cruisin’ in the sunshine.

Am I alone in thinking that a rig like that just looks daft ?

Before Peter Fonda died last year, his DNA was extracted in a secret ceremony and this clone created. What he's doing in Norfolk, I do not know.

There was, and possibly still is, a bike shop in Epping that specialised in such monstrosities.  Made me feel quite, well, normal riding past on a mudguarded, Brooksed, SON-sporting, disc-braked fixer.  With aero-bars.

Someone just went by my window effortlessly riding a unicycle.  It looked very simple.
Sic transit and all that..
