  1. My first bicycle was like those newspaper boys’ bikes. Heavy and hard to pedal. I’ wonder what the story is with the next two cycle photos. Ghost catchers?

    • I think the second photo shows a bicycle decorated for a 4th of a July parade long ago.

      Ghost Catchers was a movie and this was some promotional event.

  2. Gosh, I remember decorating our bikes for neighborhood parades – not only for recognized special days, but sometimes just for spur-of-the-moment ideas to have a parade for whatever reason. Fun times!
