My Cousins in 1954

Thought you might like this image I came across recently. I was only 2 in 1954 so I don't remember the bike but very retro cool...

Cute. Need a close up of that DD head badge-thing. Was it metal?

OK so I had to start researching this bike a bit...

The head was metal and there was a button on it that quacked when pushed...also the eyes lit up.

Minty original examples $10.000.00!!

Take it they were not related to the racing outfit that souped up ACs and Mustangs...
