One of my bocycles from middle school

Post by junkyard junky on March 19th 2012, 2:05 am

My mom got this bicycle for me either for Christmas or my birthday when I was either in elementary school or middle school. Pulled it out of the garage today and aired the tires up. I was a true hot rodder back then. Never put the reflectors on amd pulled the wheelie bar off. I eventually pulled the fenders off too.

That might be kinda hard to take around the block without pedals. Pretty cool bike though ......

I don't remember taking the pedals off! I was wondering where they were at when I took the bike outside. It was a pain in the neck to ride. You couldn't hardly turn the handle bars, just had to lean into the curve. But I did get to hop going down the street like a lowrider until I hopped a little too much and the front axle shaft came out of the slotted portion of the front fork. Then I had to push it back home.

Haven't found the pedals yet but I have an idea where they might be. Got the front fork,half the spokes,handle bars and wheelie bar clean and polished up. Wire wheels are a pain in the neck to clean up. Have to find some bolts so I can mount the fenders and chain guard.
