This idea to post bike photos seems to have caught on. I'm receiving a lot of them and will post them as I have time. I'll try to select the most interesting and original bikes when there are too many. Here are a few more:
Bob Rogens Mariposa is a masterpiece by one of the best constructeurs working today, Mike Barry. There is a wonderful series of photos of the bike here. Click on the photo to go to the next image.
Neil Berg sent another set of photos, this time of his Heron. Neil is a great at styling a bike to bring out it's best. He writes:
"After seeing the really fantastic bicycles you have posted I'm almost reluctant to submit this. I only do because it is done somewhat in your philosophy; 'cept it ain't French.

70s standard reach Modolo Pros, Honjo hammered fenders, Campy Rally rear, Campy SR front, Suntour barcons, TA crankset, VO rear rack, Riv lugged stem, Campy Nouvo Tippo hubs, Mavic rims (whatever Open Pros were called before...)
This is literally the last first generation 531 Heron built before they went out of business. I also have small Berthoud panniers, and a watercolor set and block that mounts to the rack. A picnicker. A wine bottle will fit the Nitto bottle racks perfectly."Patrick sent a link to a neat collection of photos showing the process of building up his Kogswell
Monsieur Miton, who's fine randonneuse was featured yesterday, sent a number of photos that are well worth studying. I've posted them as an album on Photo Bucket to save bandwidth. Here is the link. The red Singer is gorgeous.
