Following on from previous 'controversial' threads I'm wondering what the typical Retro Bike profile is? feel free to shoot this list down but I like to think its along the following lines;

Atheist/agnostic/skeptical
Independently minded
Politically centric (or maybe just left of centre)
Above-average intelligence
Argumentative
Resourceful
Creative
Technical

Atheist/agnostic/sceptical
No reason I can see to assume this leaning.
Independently minded
Hello? Club Joiners anonymous more like!
Politically centric (or maybe just left of centre)
I don't get this at all, plenty of right wing views on show here. I would assume slightly to the right if anything.
Above-average intelligence
Not certain being able to type is an indicator. Collecting old bikes a definite strike against this theory.
Argumentative
No more than any other keyboard warrior gathering.
Resourceful
Judging by how many complain about being skint it seems not.
Creative
90% of bikes put together with the same old, perhaps not so much.
Technical
Plenty here go to the LBS rather than fix a bike for goodness sake. It's a bike! I am guessing below average in this respect.

I'm not an atheist, as that acknowledges that there is something to not believe in. I just don't believe
