Purple bikes are unusual so when I spot one I take a second look. There's something mystical about the color, perhaps even regal. This old Columbia even had purple fenders with a chrome knob protruding from the front fender like a maiden on a ship's prow.
And who could overlook those Mardi Gras beads draped around its handlebars like pearls on a queen? Yes, I believe this bicycle oozes royalty.
