It didn't get away. It's still there in my heart. It was the bicycle on which I first pedaled too far.
1960 Fleetwing. Aluminum fenders, headlight, rack, basket and skinny street slicks. My first commuter/utility bike. The apple hasn't fallen far from the tree.
Oh, the indignities I put it through. Ape hanger handle bars, rear Wald baskets, modified the seat with pliers, painted it with yellow house paint, and then finally after 4 years of abuse, it disappeared out of the school bicycle rack.
I guess it ran away.
That or somebody wanted the ape-hanger handlebars.
