Handsome Doggie Porteur in the 18ème

This is a handsome bike. I think it might be a Pista from before they started clear coating over the labels, so there are no labels. The components are mostly Campy, that saddle is the Brooks with the hammered rivets. Everything about this bike is thoughtful, which is why it is so odd that it hasn't moved from this parking space in three weeks, apparently forgotten. It has rained almost every day, on to that beautiful saddle.

In three weeks no one has even touched this frame pump!

The bag is a Rixen & Kaul doggie bag.

Nice that no one has messed with it. If I went to that much trouble to customize a bike and had to leave it out for some period of time, I'd sure lock it down better than just a U lock through the top tube.

As you say....most odd that the bike has been there for three weeks left untouched....

Just went by the bike and got more photos. The chain is rusted, the saddle and seatpost stolen, someone went after the pump, it's starting to get stripped. What a shame.

Very, very weird for a bike to get left out that long. I've been watching the updates on the web and it does not end well for that Brooks...
