A suggestion-

Instead of bike porn with vintage bikes under young lasses (and lasso's...?- naaah that would NEVER sell), maybe the vintage bikes could be framed in similar backgrounds as period bike posters. For example, a Cycles Gladiator 'poster' but with a real bike and a real human in the same pose, etc.

Another example: Jamie Swans business card could be updated with an Ahhnuuld type person holding a sledge hammer and a smarmy accountant type holding the lightweight bike with one finger between them.

or something like that.......
