My wife posted this without checking the details...shame! This bike actually has 26" wheels, a rear drum brake and 2 speed internal hub gears. It is a full size bike with a tall seat post and narrow high rise handlebars. It has a fork lock with key and a generator/light combo. I assume it is a commuter bike as I peddle like mad and can't go too fast ! It is bright red and in excellent shape. If you know anything about it (age etc,) let me know, I'll take some photos. Steve

MISC:   THE BIG TIME posted by: Ray on 1/3/2002 at 2:59:58 AM
Well not quite. I am lucky enough to have the cable show Metro One here in the NY metro area show a piece I did on bike collecting. It will air on Jan 13th at 8:30 PM on the Metro One cable channel. My daughter did the camera work and I did the show and tell. Those of you who know me also know that I have no discipline as a collector. I have hi wheelers to muscle bikes so it should interest most of you. No laughing at the goof ups as I know there were a few. Not sure what will air as they had final edit rights. I do know that I gave them over 20 minutes of tape with about 40 or more bikes. I am now waiting for 60 minutes to call ;)
