You were the "bomb" if you owned a banana seat bike, just like today if a young person has a car first everyone wants to mooch a ride :)

Bikes! Sears Wish Book. 1972.  I had a purple and white one...can't recall if it was called Miss America or Princess...but it was one of those...man did I feel groovy when I rode mine...LOL  I was only 10! Lol Banana seat, streamers out the handle bars, put those color tubes on spokes that make noise as the wheels turned...the 70's had the best bikes and toys! :)

And there it is... My very first bike. Only, mine had a white basket on the front with retro neon colored daisies, streamers, and my dad put those neon rainbow colored spoke decorations on so my bike would jingle as I rode.  ;)

Raleigh Chopper - I never actually owned one but some of my friends did and allowed me to ride one sometimes. I coveted one dearly.

My bike as a kid was a Schwinn Stingray much like this one, except mine was orange and had one of those solid slick tires on the back.
