I found a few more. I closed the original tab but I think it said they’re a 1989 model. white saddle, bar tape, and cable housings! (purple one has an aftermarket saddle)

Mine was the second one from the bottom.

Don’t judge me.

So “the 80s; because brutalists couldn’t figure out how to make clothes out of reinforced concrete”?

Wow, the rendering and perspective are just awful; I concur that IS quintessential 80’s right there…

I think that one is the most quintessentially 80s-looking of them all. Neither good nor bad. Dated, sure. But the colors theme nicely. Mine’s just plain ugly and stupid. Bright orange and purple is a bad look. It clashes. “Video Rock”? It’s bad.

Home of Elvis and the ancient Greeks?

I adore that terrible movie. Coke-dealing motorcycle ninjas vs. a tae kwan do rock band!

I went to design school in the 1980s, and I always got a Memphis vibe from Pee-wee’s Playhouse.

Did you say… Memphis???


#34

Anyway, you can’t discuss Memphis without mentioning
