Looking Back

The tall kid's bike looks like the one that I had. Red with a banana seat and ape hanger handle bars. No hand brakes, though. Back in the good old days before parents swaddled their kids in bubble wrap to protect them from life. I can't count the cases of road rash and cuts and scrapes I got back then. Still have quite a few scars as reminders of simpler times.....

I guess they really were the Good Old Days. Poor kids now have no idea what fun is.

Jesus H. Christ I've been trying to comment all day and this complex, but spam-eliminating crap is causing my BP to hit triple digits.

Loved my 1952 J.C. Higgins fresh from Sears & Roebuck!

Those were pretty hi-tech bikes...the brakes were on the handles...I used to just push my pedals backwards if I wanted to stop/slow down.
