As far as I am concerned they are still "wonders of technology and personal style".

Daisy, Daisy, all of us on Care2..
Are half crazy all for the love of you...
Though you can't afford a carriage...
Don't let this dim your courage.....
For you'll look sweet...
Upon the seat...
Of a bicycle built for two...
Daisy, Daisy...

Anyone remember this song?
