I'm the Wiz, and nobody beats me!
Oh ME....oh MY....which bike do I pick???

Well, my Radio Bike is in pieces right now as it undergoes a MILD RESTORATION

In the absence of my Radio Bike, I fall back on a Silver Jet. Not just any (I own four), but this one. Unrestored and original 1965 men's model. I have seen a few nicer than mine but they don't come along often. I like the style, the uniqueness, the local history behind the brand. Living in the Birthplace of Aviation, I love the name "Silver JET", that chrome airplane on the fender, and a certain style that is reminiscent of the Starship Enterprise from the original Star Trek TV series that ran from 1966-69.

While digging up pics of my Silver Jet, I saw that Al Sabo had "liked" almost every photo I posted of this bike in a particular thread. Makes me miss him...he had great taste in bikes AND people!

Here's another pic that I will re-share, for Al's memory...
