This has been my noble steed for my initial explorations of urban Baltimore. I have less than $200 in this bike, and it's been good; for a given value of 'good'.

Some poor KLR pilot has no way to get his dumpster diving treasures home now. I hope you're happy.

I don't know what you're smoking man, but puff puff pass. I paid about $20 for that saddle, and I only got that one because I wondered which hipster would be moronic enough to ask me if it was a Brooks.

Quick review; for commuter/appearance purposes for a cheapo thrasher bike, it's not bad. I had some taint soreness, but I was doing hardcore urban exploration in Baltimore for a week. To be expected.

Oh, how my junk longs for the relative comfort of my Riva saddle.

I have a coupla Regals. If they fit yer rear end, they're great.

Other 2 bikes have Turbomatic 4s on em. Ditto.

I'm lucky in that I can darn near anything and not hafta worry about it.

Izzat a special edition or sumthin'? Scored it off Craigslist. The original owner was a fat guy who had the frame replaced under warranty and hardly rode it, judging by the OE Specialized tires that were on it. After consulting with Gummee about it (thanks dude), I traded my TREK 1500 plus some cash for it. Glad I did too.

No smoking involved. Nashbar sells the same, or similar, saddle under their brand:

http://www.nashbar.com/bikes/Product..._202842_10000_

It's knockoff of the Selle San Marco Regal, which is a pretty decent saddle. I was curious if the knockoff is any good.

Thumb My Ol' Otis

This is my 20 year old Otis Guy. Sweet riding bike! I've resisted updating the components because they're plenty good and still function flawlessly.

Almost every time I take it to a bike meet, people start making offers...

I've got the original forks which are going back on for the summer. Also, if you ride mainly on the road, I highly recommend the Michelin slicks - they corner like magic!
