Your Meral is a very beautiful bike indeed. But, since you seem to d eprecate other bikes which you regard as gaudy, why have you "pimped " yours with inappropriate parts? Or, since you can't seem to gain attention by good taste, are you attempting to get it by the very vulgarity you seem to decry?
Please explain.
