..we lived in a ideal world, a world with flowers in a field and sweet bunny's and lambs, a world without competition and making profits. The question is: How would a bike have looked? :)

Isn't that a low end model? In dreamland everybody rides premium. Of course affordable bikes for everybody is a good thing, but in dreamland there simply is not such thing as money.

A bit crap in a sidewind too to be honest, but awesome on the track.

It's actually prototype number 2 for the "Lotus" Chris Boardman used for his olympic gold and used to belong to Mike Burrows, the designer.
