NEEDED! Info on 70's bike(Childhood treasure)!

Hi.. Just purchased a bike at a garage sale... The same I got for my 8th birthday!! Sadly (or maybe not) Looks worse than I do.. Still I was thrilled to find it.. Anyway... I don't remember the maker of the bike and the emblem is gone.. It says ALL-PRO on the chain guard.. Girl's bike, lime or chartruese with delicate white flowers on the mud guards with green ones on a white seat.. Complete with banana seat and sissy bar... Any info or pictures would be greatly appreciated! I'm hoping to restore back to it's original spunk.. Is in need of a seat as it's original is cracked and rusting underneath..... Thanks in advance for any input... Have a great day! Lisa

All I remember is that "All-Pro" was KMart's brand of bicycle. No idea who actually made them.

Here's one of my bikes that's similar to the one you're talking about.



Joking aside, I have a neighbour who has a bike rusting in her backyard that sounds just like your description. She's got an old Murray and an old Huffy version of the old Schwinn Stingray(my custom pictured above) and one of them has the same flower graphics. I'll see if I can get any pics of it or anything.

Good find.
