Ha! That's funny. I wasn't aware that these things existed. Heres one from 86 that would work, but I don't think I could afford it.

This thread is giving me garage door envy. My first two houses had nice, solid wood doors. We moved recently and the garage is nice, but the door... meh.

I think of garage doors as intrinsically meh. In general, anyway. Should I start a thread asking for garage doors without bikes?

No! I specifically took the picture to show my bike! I thought that was the joke... anyway, I’ve enjoyed the creative and colorful doors, especially the cool color block door.

Beautiful!
Could you post some more pictures of this bike, maybe in the "American Builders Only" thread?
