Milton Creek's long been a graveyard for various items of transportation.

A classic. You can see where the front wheel went: nicked to provide a wheel for the bike that some dickhead had locked by its front wheel.  :facepalm:

The more photos appear on here the more I am convinced that owning a bike lock is a bad thing.

Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

More wounded than dead. The rest of the bike is salvageable.

I'm guessing this will buff out, or, at least, only needs a little truing:



Ta for noticing that.

In the Zeller See in Austria.  The water is so clear you can't tell, but it's a few feet down.

Never tell me the odds.

This looks to be more a carefully crafted work of art than a discarded bike ... beside a road in Sweden.

In decreasing order of visibility . . .

Between Queens Road car park & river Kennet, Reading.

The bike in the background is a 1980s Barry Hoban, Tange tubing & what looks like original components.

In the Kennet, a little downriver -


So invisible it's disappeared completely. Last seen with a couple of 'fly-tipping' labels on it.

This one has been dropped 20 feet on to the beach where it gets hammered by the tide twice a day.

Not really BSOs. They're antiques!

That's quite disturbing! Unless I'm the only one who sees a hint of dead body in those rags.
