I plan to hit all the local thrift stores, antique malls and flea markets this week. If I find something I think is cool you can bet I will post pics here before buying again. But what would be a good entry level bike to look for and what would you spend for one? It must be older than me. I'm 50. Since I already have a 1958 Columbia I want to find something older. Really want one from the WW2 period. Doesn't have to be military and I prefer a girl's bike. ( Bad experience as a child with the chain coming off while standing up on the pedals. Scarred for life. Have not ride a boys bike since 6th grade. Y'all can guess what happened. I'm sure it has happened to everyone at some point.
