And there it is... My very first bike. Only, mine had a white basket on the front with retro neon colored daisies, streamers, and my dad put those neon rainbow colored spoke decorations on so my bike would jingle as I rode. ;)
banana bike - I remember riding for hours each day on my 'Dragster'. It was lime green with a plastic woven basket on the front and tassels on the handlebars and black seat with a lime green stripe down the middle. I remember we used to attach playing cards with clothes pins on our wheels to make an engine sound.
Bikes! Sears Wish Book. 1972. I had a purple and white one...can't recall if it was called Miss America or Princess...but it was one of those...man did I feel groovy when I rode mine...LOL I was only 10! Lol Banana seat, streamers out the handle bars, put those color tubes on spokes that make noise as the wheels turned...the 70's had the best bikes and toys! :)
Banana Seat bikes - Mine was sparkly purple with an extra tall sissy bar, tall handle bars, a basket, and a knob gearshift. It was the best bike in the neighborhood for pulling "waterskiing" skateboarders.
