Handle Bars Like These Deserve a Fine Bike

The last night of polo also meant I'll be saying good bye to my polo bike, well most of it. I scored the old Raleigh Carlton for $2, revived the old Brooks saddle, stripped it down to a single speed, and added a handle bar I snagged off a little girls bike. It wasn't fast, it wasn't flashy and most of the time it wasn't even really all that comfortable. But it was a bike which I had a ton of fun on. It took a pounding week in and week out and hardly complained. I'll take the saddle and handle bar, find another vintage frame and begin a relationship with a new polo bike once I've moved. It's good to know there is already a crew playing polo and waiting for me to join them. Game On!
