    I found this picture of me at Moms on my 1st bike; a few years ago. What is it?
    Probably '69 maybe early '70
    I doubt it was new or Schwinn.
    Most Mfg'rs made a Canti after Schwinn lost exclusive patent rights.
    Looks Rollfast. What is it?
    My mom still lives at this house in HB bought new in '68

    I got one just like it. It's a Sears but don't know who made it. I always thought it was English because of the cottered cranks. IMG_20171213_081946417.jpg

    Murray sidewalk bike. The chain guard and rear dropouts give it away.

    You guys are awesome.
    Murry built Sears cantilever frame with chrome fenders still in tact.
    I wonder if I removed them before my next birthday....??

    I can't afford sentimental Value and I'm certain it wouldn't get much use; but it would be cool to have...
    @Balloontyre How Much??
    here's a recent pic in same back yard

    YES!
    Look close. I want a "Scale" reproduction so it fits me at my size today.
    I think more like 36" wheels with frame sized to that "Scale"
    Fabricators do stuff like that...
    That type of ride would be like being a lil' kid again....
