Tori Amos Cycle Chic

This post combines two of my favorite things in the whole wide world: Tori Amos and bikes. Until now, there’s never been a public picture of Tori on a bicycle – trust me, I’ve looked.  Imagine my delight when these images showed up on the video of one of her new songs, “Fast Horse.”

you’ve got yourself a fast horse, darling / but all you do is complain it’s not a Maserati / you’ve got a soul that you left back in Memphis / but your momma ain’t New York, she is pure Tennessee.

Any guesses on what kind of bike that is?

I couldn’t find this video online anywhere, but here’s the video to my fav song on the album, Flavor.

Here’s the closest “Tori on Bike” picture I could find previously.

I think that's a bike?  circa 1992

Finally, I’ll throw in the picture of when I met Tori two years ago. She is the sweetest person!

Anyone else love Tori? If not, please keep it to yourself, as it will only make me think less of you ;)

    That’s clearly a 1970s Schwinn. The shifters are just like the ones on my 1973 Varsity.

    I second Doohickie’s opinion. It sure looks like a Schwinn to me too.

    OMG, I would sell my bikes to meet Tori in person (well, maybe keep one). I’m jealous. Her new album is excellent so far:)
