Hola peoples,

I thought some of you might like to see this .. maybe it might inspire some of you.

I found a 20" bike at the thrift store when I was looking for bike parts. It is called a space star by Woolco.. distributed by Woolworth's. Got it for $3.00 so.. it will be a project for a later date.

Woolworth's, that brings back memories we had one of those on Main St when I was growing up, back in the age before malls. Cool bike.

^^ the one on Main Street in Middletown right? I remember it. It was still there in the early 80s when I moved to the area.

That's cool. Makes me wanna go find a stand up space invaders game and toss some change in it.

The ol'lady and I were just talking about woolworths the other day.

Got fond memories of the soda stand they had in the one my grandma took me to as a kid.

Cool piece of history and your lbs deserves a sixer or a fat steak for that one
