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.
Damned cissy bar!!-- Nearly killed myself when my pea coat slipped down the cissy bar & the bike & I went ass over teakettle down Maple St hill, 1971. Missed an entire month of school & my left knee's STILL messed up!! :-(
