Check out this article from the Atlantic Cities website about a modern day bike “hitching post” in San Francisco.  An old Citroen touring van, originally used to clean up after the Tour de France has been transformed into a temporary pop-up shop and park for local cyclists!  Bike Radar also snapped some photos in their article following the grand opening and stated:

The Rapha parklet was designed with tables, bicycle parking and a Citroen H Van deconstructed by Rebar and used to bookend the space directly in front of the store. Rapha has adopted the H Van as a symbol of its Cycle Clubs.
