I was shopping around for some parts and I came across this little blast from the past sitting in front of one of the LBSs here in town. Other than the new rear wheel (and tire) this appears to be the completely stock and is the exact same bike that my parents bought for me to learn on. It's a CCM Swinger (circa early 70s). The top bar is convertible to make it a boy's or girl's frame. I asked if it was for sale but it was a customer's bike. Ahh... the memories!
Not a bad-looking Nishiki behind it, either... maybe I should have asked about that one!
