Delivery Bicycle: Hong Kong
It is not much longer now, and I will be in Hong Kong. I have been preparing a bit here and there every day. I was looking through the photos I took the last time I was there in 2005, and came across this one. I did not purposely make the bicycle the focus of the picture. I was not a cyclist then. I think this is in Wan Chai, though it could be any of the areas along the Victoria Harbour on Hong Kong Island. This man must be on one of the delivery bicycles that the Hong Kong Vintage Cycling Club talks about in a video about their group. I know that Fuji (this picture link is from Vintage Japanese Bicycles)made some beautiful bicycles in the same vein as these types. I'm hoping I come across one while I'm there. I at least want to find a vintage fuji bell to use on my Dahon while I'm there.
