    Ah, the banana seat! Whatever happened to them?

    My first bicycle was (we did NOT have a lot of money, but I was the first child) imported from England -- wish I remember what make it was, but it was a gorgeous model that we had to drive into Manhattan to pick up. I think I was 4 or 5 -- it was a miniature version of an adult bicycle. Now I have to go through the photo boxes :)

    I don't remember. But I was an underprivileged, deprived child so I'm sure it was a garage sale find. ;)

    A sky blue Predator. Fucking thing was like $450 bucks in the 80s. Guy tried stealing it from me and I whacked him with those big ugly "U' shaped locks. Citadel or some shit. He was shocked and kinda just walked away. I was 10 years okd or so. Dude was probably 30 and could've fucked me up.
