I don't care weather it's a reploca or a peplika, get out there and enjoy the bike. What I wpuld like to see is that the bike would identified in an easy to find, external, inobtrusive location as a REPLICA. 30 years from now most of the spinners both verbal and physical will either be senile or in cyclist's heaven, and who's to know? It may keep honest people honest and minimize deception to the uncogniscenti who may not have access to archival material. Would seem the honorable thing to do. Wouldn't want some naughty person misrepresenting things, would we now? Ted Ernst Palos Verdes Estates, CA
