Recently, I've stumbled again upon a nice slide show of vintage messenger pictures I saw in YouTube almost a year ago. I loved the bikes, all of them fixed gear, with no brakes in sight, and lovely swept-back handlebars: the classic scorcher in its full glory. I have also enjoyed the attitude of the kids who scratched a living riding these bikes and delivering small parcels, telegrams, and letters. Wonderfull stuff!!
Many thanks to the people of Messmedia for putting this slide show together.
