Yep, I think we ALL had Schwinns. [New Schwinn - 1952] but I don't remember us all looking so dorky. Of course, in reality, my first memories of an actual YEAR are from 1957 because I remember I had a penny with "1957" on it and it was a BIG deal to me at age 4.
Tandem bike. This reminds me of the old song.. 'Sadie, Sadie give me your answer do. I'm half crazy all for the love of you. It won't be a fancy marriage. I can't afford a carriage. But you'd look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two.'
