The bike with the white tyres is like some SteamPunk creation!

Yes. I think it was a couple of years later that they changed to a two-tone black/silver with a chainring guard very much like the one on yours. The blue super-bomber had a blue metal guard.

Would love one of these. Gonna keep my eyes open for one
