probably won't be able to tell the type of bike by the photo...

Hope I am not out of line here, I just wanted to share this cool set of photos with you all.

The guy on the bike, is the Dad of one of my friends from high school, in the older photo (when he was young), he was stationed in Bassingbourn England in spring of 1943, he was 19. The photo was taken 4 or 5 weeks before he got to spend the next 19 months in the care of Hitler and his crew, between stalag 7 and stalag 19 (I believe), for the remainder of the war until he was liberated. He was a top gunner on the HelNo Gal, both times it was shot down. The second time was when the handful of guys who lived were captured.

Anyway, the other is kind of a reenactment shot, last year in Marana, AZ at the airshow he was 93 in this photo.

He is 94 this year, and still just as spry. A heck of a guy, who raised some great kids.

Anyway, here are the photos of Walter, an American hero, and his bicycle.
