New Linus Vintage Style Bicycle

Linus Bicycles have introduced a new retro city bike called the Gaston, a Path Racer
similar to the Pashley Guv'nor but 1/4 the price.
The Guv'nor by Pashley.
Here's a link to a previous post about the Path Racer.
I haven't had much of a chance to ride the Gaston (other than the ride home after purchase) but I'm very pleased with it so far. I just need to add a Brooks Saddle and I'll be all set to go.
The Gaston was purchased at Bikes on Wheels in Kensington and has been upgraded with a Brooks B67 saddle from West Side Cycle on Roncesvalles and a carrying rack from Canadian Tire.
A small tool bag has recently been added.
Simulated leather tool bag from Electra.
A great source for real 1960's vintage bicycle parts:
