Definition

An old cycle model, in vogue sometime in the 40s-50s (not surprisingly, the only cycle model back then). Almost always dark green in colour and completely made of steel. Characterized by the straight stand as opposed to the side stand that is much more prevelant these days. However, it is surprisingly more stable and quick when compared to most modern cycles.

Usage
