    dmrd1956 South Dakota

    Hi, I am from South Dakota...I lived in Minnesota for 12 years and then moved home to
    South Dakota...Last Summer I was moving things around in our shop and I found a old bike..
    It looked just like the bike my Father gave me when I was 12..except a few years older..
    it had a bit of rust on it and was covered with dirt..you could hardly see the color of the bike.

    I washed it up and had the tires fixed and started to ride My early 1950 or 60 Firestone
    Balloon tire bike...I am in love with it.. It reminds me of when i was 12 years old..and of course my Father,
    except my bike was a Huffy...same color, every thing is the same except this one is a firestone 500.

    I wanted to paint it but my husbands says no I really shouldnt ....I hope to keep it for years and hand it down
    to one of my daughters ( what ever one shows interest) so that is my story

    I think this will be a fun way to get some new ideas on how to restore my Bike.
