My kids (and now my grandson) love this seat. It hooks on the handle bars and locks on around the stem. Takes about 1 minute to install. 10 times better than riding behind me. They see the world instead of my butt.

How do you post full size pics?

Plus they have there own handlebars so they can help you steer.

The photos must be posted to an external site like photobucket etc. When you "insert image" select the "from URL" tab, paste in the URL, and UNcheck the box that says "Retrieve remote file and reference locally", then click on OK.

Very cool. I've wondered with the popularity of all things retro, if a new banana bike wouldn't sell.

Here's a old Ross Central Park I bought at a estate sale 10+ years ago. The whole family rode it around the neighborhood for a while but it ended up sitting for years. This spring, renewed interest in biking had me rehabbing the Ross after finishing my old Fuji. The rims and fenders were so rusted, I decided to go with a urban look with black over primer. I posted these pic's a few months ago hoping to find the age of this bike. Let me ask again if anyone has any info on a Ross Central Park ? Thx

Have you tried the Classic and Vintage thread? I bet they could help you nail down a birthday.

My Nirve needed a new rear wheel so I sold it for $65 and bought this Phat for $75. Something in the back makes a clunking noise but it works.
