I bought an '83 Pog a couple of years ago simply because I loved the bike. Wasn't trying to pretend it was something it wasn't-just love the bike, love the ride. It turns heads everywhere I ride it-someone always comments. Oh, I know if I were riding in a group with half a dozen 'Keepers of the Flame', it might be just another garage bike. You know, clunky lugs, paint too heavy....
Would I like to have an "original"? Sure I would. But the bike has a place of honor in my garage. I might get the chance to own one of Sante's own creations one day, but even if I do, I'm still keeping the fake.
