    " You can tell it's Mattel, they're swell " When i was growing up, this was the "bomb" to have on your bike. The deluxe kit came with a gas tank that opened up for all of your stuff. D batteries ran the sound and your feet did the pedaling.

    Mom didn't mind the cards, but didn't like us using her clothespins.

    Kids even nowadays will use the cards in their spokes. The day I took my Whizzer around the neighborhood for the first time I was greeted about a half hour later by the sight of three boys riding their bikes with cards in the spokes. I think their cards were duct taped into place though...

    we had quite the bike gang when I was a kid. the streets were as quiet as a gated community or something like that, so bikes rules the streets

    For a time I was intending to make v-rooom decals for my happy time but then the project went from a 60's frame to a 40s frame. Also I figured only one in a million would know what it was a reference to. Still like to see done though.
