Seeing Jeff's post on his backyard scoreboard, took me back to a few things of yesteryear.
Something i have been wondering did you guys ever take ordinary playing cards and a clothes peg and put them on the forks of your bicycles to flapper through the spokes.
Used to make a racket and gave us the feeling our bikes were going faster .
How many of you ever had a carrier on a bicycle, one of those things that went behind the saddle and mounted on two struts from the rear wheel up.
We would put our satchel in there and use a bungee to tie it in. Wonder just how many kids go to school by bicycle these days. Lots in Africa there is no school bus system. Allows one to stop at the corner cafe (convenience store and play some pinball on way home. )
