A Schwinn "Apple-Crate." Wish I still had it.

Its.......A FACT!

Although I love my Sprint ST, I'm with Ken on this one.

My (really heavy) Bridgestone 12-speed bike that hauled me all over Clark AB during High School is probably my 'best' bike. I 'custom' built it using parts from other broken bikes I bought cheap at the BX.

I remember my first bike, too. A Schwinn "Stingray", with a "Cheater Slick" on the back.

The bike I had before the Bridgestone was a Huffy knock-off of the Stingray. My memory is foggy, but I want to say it was the one that had a steering wheel, a skinny front tire and a big slick on the back. It was Orange, with white pinstriping. I remember my fat @ss kept breaking the sissy bar at the boltholes where the seat mounted.

It was stolen from my front door. Thus the Big 'Stone.

I had a badass black & orange bike with a plastic gastank (with removable fuel cap). #55 placards on the handlebar & under the tank where the motor was supposed to be. Ohh and ace of spades held via clothespin hitting the spokes for "motor" sounds. Soda can properly run over, pinching knobby tires after it hits the forks will make good motor sounds too.

1955 Lambretta 150. Bought it at a garage sale for $10.00 when I was thirteen, fixed the igniiton & carb, rode it for three years, never registered it, put a license plate off a BSA on it. Never got pulled over, it never quit on me. Sold it to a buddy who rode it off a cliff in Griffith Park, it's still there probably. Best bicycle was a 1950's Mammoth with giant fenders, springer front forks and a fake gas tank/headlight(s) combo, chrome and red. Baloon whitewall tyres. Weighed fifty pounds at least, built up the calves.

My first big bike was a huffy with two L shaped chromed pieces that were supposed to be the handlebars. You could ride with no hands like a champ but because of the shape you couldn't hold a wheelie no matter your skill level. Terrible design Huffy!

My favorite bike is one that ran and/or didn't run when it felt like it. 1969 Triumph rigid framed bike. You could be travelling down the road at speed and it would suddenly take a nap. After the third time that happened I don't think I left the slow lane for the next two years. With every fresh tank of gas you would have to add a fresh qt of oil. I loved that bike.
