Later, he'll be canoeing with the bike in there. Now, that's cool.

Burt Lancaster's character in The Swimmer shoulda thought of this. It could be a tv series.

Then you'll probably appreciate a bicycle related photo of Claudia Cardinale, who co-starred in Once Upon A Time in The West. It looks like she was preparing a few things for a garage sale. I imagine the prospective buyers had no qualms meeting her asking prices!

There are plenty of pictures of Claudia with bicycles on the internet, including one of her and Charly Gaul about a year after he won the Tour de France and probably taken during the 1959 Giro d 'Italia, which he won.

I might be the only American cyclist to notice that Claudia is holding 2 sticks that I assume are tools to play a game I've come across in 2 areas of the world. The long stick is the equivalent of a bat and the short double tapered stick is like a ball that can be hit with the "bat". My mother grew up in a Danish farming community in Iowa more than 100 years ago. They played a game with a long and short stick she called "stick". When I was going to an international high school in northern India in the 60's, we played a similar game that in the Urdu language was called "gilli danda". It is described in Wikipedia. When the pointed short stick is hit while on the ground, it pops up and then can be hit again for distance. If the little stick can be bounced on the bat before being hit out, the batter gets more points. The further it is hit the more points can be earned. I'm going to assume some version of this game was played in Italy. Has anyone else ever come across some version of this game somewhere?

I wonder if the bike is used in whatever stick game she's playing? Bike looks as though it was designed for one-handed riding, with no rear brake. Some form of bicycle polo maybe?

And check out that seat.

My father immigrated from Scotland where they played a version by the name of Tip Cat. It's definitely played in Italy, where it's called Lippa and other regional names.

Camera angle; look at the cocked front wheel. The bar is a Euro clubman-style bicycle handlebar.

Other friends recall seeing them at the local McDonalds before they hit it big. Fun times.
