He Rode the bike a few weeks ago for the first time in 25 years! He was so happy to see it again, he said it brought back alot of memories, he couldn't believe i rescued it. He's glad I want to restore it, he said when he was a kid, my grandfather had to spend a couple of weeks pay on it. When he got it for christmas in 1950 I guess it was alot of money back then. If it wasn't for my uncle saving it for him all those years,(until the mid 80's), it wouldn't be here today. Believe it or not, I'm the only one in my family to see how important this old bike was, & I am proud to have it.
