Customisation?

The Stadtbahn (Metro) station in Sillenbuch is a popular place for cycle commuters to park when they catch the Stadtbahn into the city. I suspect that several come from Ostfildern, this is one zone closer to the centre, and a relatively safe place to leave a bike.

I’ve sometimes idly wondered who owns this bike and why it is painted thus: Is it owned by a student who needed a cheap form of transport? or perhaps a housekeeper wanting a convenient runabout for the shopping? Maybe it’s the property of a well-heeled middle aged lecturer who wanted to leave it outside the station without it being stolen? I’ve yet to meet the owner and find out.
