What would a kid’s summer be without a bike as their primary mode of transportation? Besides riding to friend’s houses or to the carry-out for candy (why don’t they carry Fun Dip????), we would daredevil it over the dirt hills across the street from my house, where new homes were being built. Some of the hills were pretty steep; there were wipeouts galore.
The bike pictured here is not the one I rode back then, but some of the boys we used to hang with in the neighborhood had banged-up dirt bikes not unlike this one, and we would give them a try sometimes.
