Fabulous Fender

I posted another view of this old blue bike on Flickr today. But I just have a hunch that someone (Jen?) would appreciate this rear view of the fabulous fender with the three blue reflectors! Growing up, we had a blue bike similiar to this one. Ours had a battery operated push button horn built into the frame. I think it was a Schwinn, but we just called it 'the blue bike'.

Really blue lights and batteries? I didn't know about those either. Great bike, and great picture. Really, why didn't you steal it? I guess you stole a picture of it, makes for a whole lot less guilt!

I think I like this view best. What a fabulous bike. I had one for a time with battery operated lights but got sick of hauling it up 3 flights of stairs to my apartment at that time. If I remember correctly though, it wasn't as cool as this one. I don't think it had that cool 3 light thing going. It might just possibly be in my parents basement so I'll have to check it out the next time I visit.

The blue lights are just too cool! Great shot. Leave it to you to spot it.
