MISC:   1970s "Banshee" posted by: Linda Moore on 8/10/2007 at 6:34:39 PM
Just wondering if anyone might have some info. When I was about 8 (around 1971) I was given a banana seat bike. I remember by the pedals on the frame it said Banshee. I have no idea where my parents bought it. There was a local Western Auto store or maybe they got it at Sears. It had a green frame, white banana seat(no backrest, just a small curved bar at the back of the seat). The actual handles on the curved handlebars were also white. I would be very much interested in finding out more info about this if anyone has heard of this bike. It would be even better if anyone still owns one! And while we're on it, do they make banana seat bikes for adults now? In cool colrs? That Banshee was my favorite bike, even though it had just one speed and pedal brakes. Thanks for any help!
