Mom bought me a steering wheel bike for my 14th birthday. It was the coolest of any bike I had ever had before and cooler than almost anyone else around because there weren’t many of them made. My bike had an actual steering wheel for the handlebars, it had a very cool shifter for the gears, a banana seat and big ole sissy bar. She also bought my two brothers, Kevin and David matching stingray bikes.
I think I ended up riding that bike for a good 2 years until I began to drive a car. But for the life of me, I don’t remember what ever happened “Ol Blue”.
Mom hit a home-run with that bike…I’ll never forget it either.
