With bikes are well on their way to becoming status symbols, it might be time to consider upgrading to something a bit more European…

This Opa from Dutch Workcycles sports a sprung leather saddle and powder-coated frame for an old world look, but the touch that sets it apart from the Schwinns of the world is the covering on the back half, including the encased chain, that lets you hang saddlebags over the back—or an adventurous companion, if you’ve got company.

Just watch out for thieves.
