the purple beast

I like bikes.  I like bikes a lot.  This particular beauty is my work horse.  I’ve spent the last couple of years riding it and curating its collection of parts.  Like a true piece of art, it will never be complete.

Meet my Sekai.  Good ole’ Japanese steel…

I don’t know if you could tell, but I like Ritchey parts.  I even have a matching hat…

Yes, my front and rear brakes are mismatched, thanks for noticing…

All in all, the purple beast is awesome.  There is not a road I don’t feel at home with her on.
