california summer, 1971

i am dying to get a sporty  schwinn (or otherwise) and flip my handlebars.  do you remember how everyone used to do this? i had completely forgotten
 until just now.

there's a lot to love about this photo.

though it forces me to (yet again) become  nostalgic for the schwinn i probably erroneously sold earlier this summer in the wake of getting a new bike. note to self: in the future you can have as many clunky bikes as there are sign posts! 

sorry to be a relatively one trick pony with the last few posts but i don't seem to be the only one sentimental as far as bikes (and photography) are concerned.
