A place for photos and descriptions of your bikes.
Can't recall if this has been posted anywhere here or not. A bunch of old photos and articles on bikes from the Modern Mechanix magazine http://blog.modernmechanix.com/category ... /bicycles/
A bit of a bump... This isn´t a very old pic but something tells me you'll like it.
From http://www.flickr.com/photos/fixedgear/52438477. Check out his sets (http://www.flickr.com/photos/fixedgear/sets/), he's got a lot of cool old bike photos.
Also would like to say just in case some of you have`nt seen it, Joe Kid on a Stingray http://www.joekidonastingray.com/
History of BMX here`s the trailer http://www.joekidonastingray.com/jktrailerpage.html
was inspired to post this after the pic of the young kid jumping the schwinn krate above.
Not real early but at least 50+ years old. I know because the first two pics are me, the last was an estate sale find.
This is me in 1954 on the sidewalk in front of my grand parents house, the bikes are my uncles. They were into rat bikes long before it was known to be called a rat bike.
this pic is me and my first bike a brand new 1958 J.C. Higgins
Don't know anything about this pic, but its a cool bike.
turn off the TV and turn on your life.......... Make Something Happen!!
Here's a pic of me getting ready to ride in the 1963 Labor Day Parade in Westville, IL. I'm the second boy in the center and I'm riding a 24" JC Higgins Spaceliner. (Flightliner?) I was 9 in this pic. All the riders got paid 50-cents to decorate their bike and ride. And back then payment was a nice silver half dollar! The girl next to me with her hand on the seat and looking back is Jeannie Michael, my next door neighbor. If you look down the road and to the right, you can see the sign at the gas station with the price....$30.9. Air was always free back then too! B607
Same pic, cropped closer.
Dripping with Sarcasm...
