My Bike in a Museum

I'm Chef at a museum cafe, and mentioned to the Senior Exhibition Designer and Chief Preparator that i'd like to take a picture of my bike in the Taft Museum, to post on bmxmuseum.
Literally the next time I saw him he said, "Grab your bike, lets take it up to the Mucha print". What a nice guy.
My phone takes pretty garbage pictures, and i wish i had ridden one of the bikes I've never had a chance to post here, but I was pretty happy. smile

Edited for accuracy.

Yeah I think Mark (Senior Exhibition Designer and Chief Preparator) was slowly dying inside watching me butcher this opportunity.

Edited to fix Mark's title.

Re: My Bike in a Museum

Thanks guys. And thanks Gary for trying to fix my crappy photos.
I'm going to try this again with a better camera/photographer, and maybe one of my other bikes. Not sure about changing bikes, because I thought the red bike looked great with the Toulouse Lautrec prints.

So here is another crappy blurry photo

And another With the Mucha

Thank you. Sadly I'm not the original owner. I had an '88 for 15 years but it was stolen. I've been slowly rebuilding this for 6 years or so. I just put a mid 90s GT stem that I always ran on it. I think it is done finally.

Thanks man. I love the '88 Redline colors. I just got an OG blue one with blue forklifter bars from lipskidomatic a couple months back.
I've got some Redline 400s and a Hutch stem to put on it then I'll get pics of that up too.

Thanks, I'm working on a new menu right now to pair with an upcoming Hudson River Valley exhibit.
