"To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight;

and never stop fighting." ~E.E. Cummings

Wilco Bike (click for info)

"The bike’s core is a restored 1955 Claud Butler Reynolds Steel frameset. When it came into my hands, the frame had gone through too many owners to count and had seen multiple modifications. Still in need of some minor tweaks and repairs, two separate frame builders did the work locally: Owen Lloyd of Lloyd Cycles and Michael Catano of Humble Frameworks. I designed the decal set from scratch, riffing off an original Claud Butler design, but also imagined as if Wilco was an American company producing bicycles in the 1950’s. Duane Waller of Chester Cycles in Chicago provided the dust-blue paint (a 1950’s Ford Truck Color) with white lug outlines and elegant box lining." ~Todd Simeone - 2011 Visual artist, general bike guy and co-founder of Tenspeedhero.com
