    Well i dug out some of my old schwinns fellas. My 50s spitfire and 70s hollywood. Loaded with dust! I aired up those tires and hit the road. Took my old hogs on a 4 mile blast around my neighborhood. We rode to the oldest cemetery in my city. Heres some pics![​IMG][​IMG]

    Nice to see you around. Hopefully you still have that Panther.

    Seeing your signature line made me smile.
