I was at the Coliseum before one of Championship games when he rode through the crowd on his bike, such a great pic of a huge moment in time.

This is not a complaint, just a request, for the name of the celeb to accompany the pic. Or is that half the fun and I'm missing out?

Bill Walton also played the Clean Bottle mascot when they initially launched. He was at races including some of the big stage race tours dressed in the bottle costume.

chance upon this image online without date or identification

since it is from Vogue magazine it may be a celeb...or it could be just a model

appears forties, cycle appears lime

perhaps some facial recognition software will come up with an identification

nice peecha in any event...
