It just me or is this saddle pointed in the absolute right direction to inflict the most pain on the rider of this bike? Who puts their saddle at that kind of angle? A masochist i suppose. Perhaps the saddle is the rider punishing himself like a zealot with penance in some testicular flagellation manner. I only offer this as a possibility as the bike is also covered with paper mache bible pages. I have often said this revolution of bike riders from out-of-the-box bikes to custom fixed gears was going to result in a number of casulties, this early 80's Araya being one of them. May the Lord have mercy on your soul.
Speaking of prayers, this Motobecane i have named: "the Praying Mantis" for its impossibly placed set of double aero-bars, must have somehow become self aware and is hoping to find refuge in a higher power. Perhaps this soul change occured after spotting itself in a mirror for the first time and realizing the horror that others see. The poor thing isnt even allowed inside the church and has to settle for begging for forgiveness on the steps. I forgive you child for you know not what you do. The Surly makes a more modest attempt at public prayer. (probably catholic)Praise Allah! These bars are so far up they look less like praying arms and more like a pirate surrendering.
I include this next bike in the religious section only because the first words out of my mouth when viewing the bike for the first time was: "Oh my God!" Look at the size of that head tube! that thing is almost as tall as a 700c wheel! The bars are then dropped and slammed into the headtube forcing the rider to go ass over elbows in a perfect prayer position.
