Just a little bastard of history

What is the best aspect of riding this bike?
“The feeling.”

Notes: This is a Felt bicycles James Dean release from 2015. An American classic, ridden in Belgium, with a man from Croatia. Why not? He offered the bike for a quick spin around the block and it has that long, luxurious slide you expect of a cruiser bike. This is not speed. It is presence. Of course, James Dean was no cyclist. Felt borrowed the number, font included, and “Little Bastard” moniker from Dean’s motorcar presence.  The paint job is the same colour as Dean’s famous Porsche Spyder. A little cross-over exercise.
