Grass roots get-together event in Kitchener-Waterloo last night. The Dekerfs all got the green carpet treatment (this is Canada, after all).

The only one cool enough for a radial wheel!

Good eye. With a Mag 20 crown, anything more than radial lacing is overkill. :D

That is a sweet bike, the closest I come to owning a DeKerf is a 90s brochure...

Event was a low-key community affair. Wanted to go meet a few of the local-ish guys (and girl) from the Dekerf Owners Facebook group who were going to be there. Finally had a chance to sit down and tweak some images.

This Solitare is sweet. Burgundy metalflake on creme by House of Colour. Gold leaf Dekerf decals. Bling everything. Apparently the owner (Andy) worked on the Team FS design w. Chris.

Andy's wife's SST w. LE pink King goodies.

Well ridden Ritchey drop bar.

Just wow.

What a great show.

We used to have something similar with custom and vintage cars and motorbikes at a local school. You'd get a whole bunch of backpatch dudes chatting with old guys while admiring one anothers machines.

That was the next night. Met a few friends on quattroworld.com at a British/Euro show on the bay by my house.
