Bike Radios? Anyone know much about this thing?
Spring's arrived and I'm putting my radio back on my Schwinn, which got me thinking, anyone recognize this thing? I've never been able to figure out when it was made or what it might be worth.
I got it last August, right about when I finished bringing the Schwinn back into attractive, working condition. I'd been talking about how cool it would be to have a radio and just ride around listening to NPR when fate would have it, I found one at a flea market in the last stall I stopped at! The guy had just picked it up the previous week, didn't even know if it worked so I gave him five bucks and hoped.
Hope, some confused battery installation, and rigging a boost to the antenna resulted in a working little red radio.
Yet as irony would have it, I now live only a third of a mile from the Public Radio brodcast station and the signal overwhelms the little guy.
