Yellow seat (probably changed out), blue basket zip-tied to handlebars (probably removed), back wheel rack, green bottle holder inside frame, cheap target American-themed ringer, and very thick, red o-shaped lock that's locked at the front side of the frame (key was lost so I doubt thieves would be able to remove this without taking a hacksaw or power tool to it). I have a photo showing the o-shaped lock that is stuck on the frame.
