Black Beausage

My favorite bikes tend to be the ones with a sort of cobbled together aesthetic, there's something about a mix of vintage and new parts that just speaks to me.  I also like my bikes to have a healthy dose of "beausage."
It's not really your bike until you've added you own scrapes and scuffs.
The vintage Nitto handlebars have really completed my newest ride, a 200? Raleigh One Way I picked up off craigslist in Sacramento.  These bars have both vintage cache and came pre-beausaged from their former life on a Bridgestone MB-2.

I also got to indulge my irrational love of Shimano 600 cranks.
All in all, this bike has become a reflection of my own bicycle philosophy.
