This 1965 Rudge Sports 3-speed women's bike is an English cruiser configured as an Irish cargo bike: it's ready to carry Basket O'Groceries.

Grocery stores sell pancake mix, eggs, and milk. They sell maple syrup, bacon, bread, margarine and orange juice. They sell blueberries.

Blueberries are blue. The paint on this Rudge is blue. You can't make pancakes with a 1965 Rudge in them. But you can certainly make blueberry pancakes covered in maple syrup, with bacon, buttered toast, and orange juice on the side.

That sounds delicious.
