Never had anything but a standard one speed. Did’nt even realize the shiftable ones existed. Rode that one speed all to heck since the fishing hole on our property was about a half mile from the house and the little store with soda pop and candy was a mile away.

Our friends went to different schools together.
My Buds was an apple. That bike inspired us to build choppers.
We had the first hard tail springer bikes, all home fabbed.
My Son followed the bike building with BMX then later mountain bikes.
He's into Cannondale at the moment.
There is $$ in bikes.

The last time scrap spiked I took in over a hundred, I can't save everything,
though I try lol.

I had one, but my parents picked it up from the local auction house. I loved it and rode the tires off it !
