Many of us have a fascination with classic automobiles — they remind us of those care-free days of our youth when the world seemed to be a simpler place. But classic bikes are also available and are rapidly growing in popularity. Sometimes referred to as vintage bikes, classic bikes are replicas of bikes that were designed and built prior to the 1970s. They can even be the original bikes that have been retrofitted with new parts to restore them to like-new condition.
Common characteristics of classic bikes include a fixed wheel, custom leather seats and handles, pannier racks and a vintage design that closely resembles the original model. Riders of retro bikes get the best of worlds: a bike that has a classic look that never goes out of style and the benefit of modern comfort and technological features that provide a most enjoyable riding experience.
