how was the Tailgating? as for the bike, I really dig it, it looks like a girls BNX style bike from the late '60 or early '70s. can you post close ups of the stickers on the frame?

well i have already taken the stickers off because i will be painting it soon. one did say golden arrow then trademark on the side. It had the symbol of the arrow if you look at the piece on the frame under the seat. Oh, there was also a sticker that said "made in Italy." Maybe it was just a custom frame. Either way I'm enjoying it!

thats too bad about the stickers and the paint. bikes are like guns, if they have any vaue "restoring" them can destroy it.

unless a member comes buy that can idetify it by sight we may never know more about it

Bike looks like fun if it fits. I'm curious, why spend money reconditioning it? There is likely very little resale value at this point in it's life. I say ride it like hell and leave it as is. Just my two cents.

Anyone else think it looks kind of Schwinn-ish?
