I'm going to buy one of these bikes and charge people $10.00 each to pose with it....
That was a very rear bike! It's a derailleured Krate with training wheels! I've never ever seen one like that before and the proof is in the picture. lmao

This just ended tonight on eBay.....34 dollars....
Let's see....common Orange krate shot when Polaroids were everywhere and so
were the Schwinn krate bikes

1938 Motorbike....quite rare by todays standards.... when photography was a luxury passtime
.....
If the Ray pic was 1100.00 bux...
the Motorbike pic should be worth maybe 2 or 3 times that amount...riiiiiiiiiight????

This just shows how crazy things are getting. Some people have the cash to pay whatever they have to for something they want. Kinda like a second childhood on steroids ! That being said, this pic now has provenance and who knows...But let em spend their money, more worthwhile stuff in the marketplace for us !

In a age when all your pics on your phone , maybe you should think twice ?
Many of us have photo albums and or boxes of old photos, what dose the new generation have ? Pics on ther devices that get lost when they jump in the pool with a phone in ther pockets.

Anyone with a very late '68 Orange Krate want to put it on Ebay and claim they are the kid in the picture with his original 1 owner bike?

Maybe it’s one of those estate disputes; “Well, everyone wants this cool pic of dear old Dad when he was a kid. The only fair way to settle it is throw it on eBay and let em fight over it there”.....

If this is legit I would love to know the story behind it. It seems like "This American Life" could do a whole show about it and get to the bottom of this mystery.
