Following are some pictures of my 1987 Raleigh Seneca MT TOURING bike. This bike probably wasn't ridden more than about 50 miles whenever I had purchased it and I have only put about 50 miles on this bike myself. Despite being 22 years old this bike still looks almost new. I had removed some of the original parts such as the stem, seat, seat post, and pedals to upgrade the bike somewhat and to fit me better, I kept all of the original parts so I could restore this bike back to original, whenever I sell it:

Thanks for the compliment!
You can use the "quote" button...it's easier to read than spelling out who you're talking to.

I'm just sayin...

Another thing, it looks like a great rider but maybe ditch the "pie-plate" rear spoke protector thing...they look kinda dorky in my opinion. To each his own, though!

Thanks for the tip about using the quote button-as I'm new to this forum-but, I will do this from now on.

Well, I agree with you regarding the "pie-plate" rear spoke protector thing-but, it came with the bike-so, I just left it on there.

No. But, why do you ask? Is it because of the antique 1950's sofa in the background?
Yes, that and and few other things such as....the area rug on top of the carpet, the cherub lamp, the bureau with teapots and decorative gravy boats in it, the embroidered cushions, the gold fan shaped fire grate, the lacquered wall hanging....

It was my wife who had collected some of those items as well as the antique furniture and then, had decorated the living room with different things that she thought would blend in with all of this stuff. But no, neither of our grandmother's live with us.

You don't say.
Yes, and those tires roll smooth and fast on the asphalt without making any noise. There are a bunch of smaller knobs in the tread that are spaced fairly close together and the center row of knobs are larger and flatter and are even closer together, which helps quell the noise.

At least you have the balls to admit it.

On the other hand, while I understand "protecting" a bike you love it is my opinion that EVERY mtb. bike from your Cunninghams to your lowly Huffy BEGS to be ridden in dirt at least sometimes. So please grant them that wish!

On the third hand, it's your sh*t so do with it what you will...
