One of the first bikes I thrift picked 25yrs ago was a metalic blue SS about like OP. I think mine was a '68, it had the same stem/dropouts/dt bosses/chrome fork. It became my first fixed gear in late '99 with an epoxied freewheel before I laced my first wheel for it. I've always had a soft spot for fillet brazed schwinns since, but I don't think any of them have resonated the same for me as that first one.

You know Maine and New Hampshire do share a common border for a few hundred miles so it isn't like New Hampshire is that far away.
Yes, and that's the only other US state that Maine shares a border with--no other state has just one neighbor. I understand that this is a source of disappointment for many Mainers, since it would be more fun to share a border with Vermont.
