Listers,

I have a beautifully pinstriped Speedwell for sale. It's built up as a 'rider' in that it has new wheels with sun M13 rims and a single speed freewheel. The pinstriping is particularly wonderful on this one and is clearly hand-done in the traditional Australian flamboyant style.

By the way, is this still happening on KOF bikes in Australia or was this a fad? Perhaps there is some sort of kinship with Australian Aboriginal art? For example as seen here: http://www.aboriginalartnews.com.au/2006/09/journeys-of-the-dreamtime-an-exhibition-of-australian-aboriginal-art-from-the-ce.php

Feast your eyes on the Speedwell: http://picasaweb.google.com/hschwartzman/Speedwell

If you were at T-town in October, you may have seen this bike there.

I am asking 700 dollars shipped and am open to offers.
