Around thirty years ago I bought my first bike, a 1979 Special. I rode the bike to San Francisco, to Chicago a bunch of times, and all around Toronto all the time.

early 80s:


I sold it to a pal who sold it to a pal who moved to Europe and left the bike in his brother's garage. The brother's wife had had it and wanted the bike gone.

The bike's mine again. Nov 2006:


Back to Black. Oct 2008:


It runs just fine. Starts on the kicker no worries but you shouldn't be wearing your Chuck Taylors.
I don't ride it as often as I should.
