That bike looks older than you. Wear a helmet. I friend of mine would have died 10 years ago when he fell over in his own driveway and hit his head bad. The helmet split and he was touch and go for a week in the ICU. I was told he died. A couple of years later, I saw him and couldn't believe it. He explained how it was close. If it wasn't for him wearing the helmet, 4 kids wouldn't have a Dad.  Good Luck, Rick

Looks like the Pierce Arrow bike that my brother has. It was my Grandfathers, and I remember him riding it when we were kids. My brother was big into BMX and downhill mountain biking and he was real good at both. He takes the Pierce Arrow out once in a while on days like this.

Boy , you don't see bicycles like that any more. I'm sure you enjoyed your self. I have not been on a bike in about 40 years. But the funny thing is, you never forget how to drive a bike once you learn it. I still have my ten speed bike from when I was 12 !! Noel

Had a bike very similar to that, a Glider. First thing I did to it was take the chain guard off. Got my pant leg caught in the chain of course and took a header going downhill. (if you've ever been to Kenora Ont. you'll know what I mean, it's all up and down hill!) Yup, I put the chain guard back on.  Nice bike.

Jesse, no generator powered off the back sprocket?? I thought for sure there would be an old AC/Simplicity unit bolted to a frame behind your seat! :D :poke: 

 

Oh... I hope you enjoyed your ride. :rolling:

Lol, thank guys, absolutely wonderful evening.

 

Meanwhile in Boston Metro :biker,winter.jpg New England is bike country !

 

 

My bike is a Schwinn Traveler from the 50's, missing the headlight, generator and front fender. Still has the original Schwinn tires !

The Schwinn's I remember were heavy duty: balloon tires, wide fenders, heavy frame and a completely enclosed chain guard. The Cadillac of bicycles!
