FFF, thanks for posting that - it's really interesting, there's a thread On yer bike!, which would be suitable too.
Yes, but I figured out it was for showing forum members on their bikes (and not vintage pictures)
I just found the link when searching for pictures with plus fours. I like the many snapshots of the boys goofing off.
I wouldn't take vintage-like or modern bike, so I come to a decision restore real vintage bicycle for everyday riding, there's plenty of them everywhere and no one wants them. This is wartime (circa 1942) tourist model CZ 2/V. Work still not finished on it, but here's some pictures as inspiration for the others.
here's one of me wearing a suit and bicycle, it does run a bit hot mind and you have to not mind that people will find the look a bit odd...
Bicycle is a Pashley Sovereign and yes i'm wearing just the one brooks leather trouser clip.

Sad that, as you say, people seem to need to have "an out" where they can claim to be ironic or whatever the hipsters are on about.
