Bikes: Looking Forward and Looking Back

Second, this website for Pashley Cycles of Stratford-upon-Avon, England where they hand build a variety of classic bikes.

Here's the Roadster 26 which seems a practical choice and would, I'm sure, make just about any ride more fun:
But, if I were buying, it would be hard to resist the Roadster Sovereign, "A whale amongst minnows."
