A pair of these and some Cragers.........

My son found these and sent me the picture- said the idea had to come from someone in my generation.
I've never seen them before.
Have to get some fuzzy dice also.

Schwinn had something like that on some of it's geared Stingray type bikes when I was a kid.
Always wanted one but I had to settle for cheap knockoffs since my parents would spend the cash.

I had a set of those. They where on a deparment store bike that my parents got me for
x-mas one year. I rode that bike until the fork crown broke off from the steerer tube, ouch. My last non-LBS bike BTW.

If I had a pair of those I'd make sure to get some clothes pins and attach some playing cards to hit the spokes.
