    Hola peoples,

    I thought some of you might like to see this .. maybe it might inspire some of you.

    I found a 20" bike at the thrift store when I was looking for bike parts. It is called a space star by Woolco.. distributed by Woolworth's. Got it for $3.00 so.. it will be a project for a later date.

    I love the arcade style of that bike. It represents the culture during that time. :D

    Woolworth's, that brings back memories we had one of those on Main St when I was growing up, back in the age before malls. Cool bike.

    That's cool. Makes me wanna go find a stand up space invaders game and toss some change in it.

    The ol'lady and I were just talking about woolworths the other day.

    Got fond memories of the soda stand they had in the one my grandma took me to as a kid.

    Cool piece of history and your lbs deserves a sixer or a fat steak for that one
