Some folks have all the luck. This bike had never been put together. If anyone knows, the whereabouts of this bike, we'd love to know more about it! A total dream come true!

I had one when I was a kid. I believe I got it for Christmas in 1964. I recall that it was the only thing I really wanted that year, and you can just imagine my surprise when I saw it first thing Christmas morning, sitting in our living room by the tree! About the only thing that survived of that ole bike is a photo of me on it, and the many fond memories of riding it. Good times indeed.

We were dirt poor.  A bike was beyond our means, but my mom encouraged me to enter the Brookfield Ice Cream colouring contest and I won this bike.  That was 50 years ago, but I remember the feeling.  It's one that I rarely have anymore but when I do it's heaven all over again.  I was the envy of every kid on the street.

Christmas, 1966 - Santa had made my dreams come true!

Truly the envy on the street... until that Raliegh Chopper came along...

My parents got me one of these for Christmas
Sometime in the mid sixties. My Mom still has
The invoice. They paid $24.95. Ordered it out
Of the Montgomery Wards Christmas Catalogue.
That was a weeks worth of groceries for a
Family of five.
