when i was a lad the bike of choice was a chopper.
I had a tomahawk, that was smaller than the chopper.
It was a dangerous bike the chopper, as the gear stick was right in the center of the frame, and if you slipped
off the saddle, it could give you a nasty injury.
Denamrk street in possil was the choice street for bikes, and roller skates as it was so flat.
me and my pal Kenny smith would ride our bikes all day up to the bird sanctuary in lamb hill.

what bikes did you have?

I had a Raleigh, 3 speed, Got it new from Fishers Household Supplies at Glasgow Cross after my Ma had a win at the bingo.
The bird sanctuary in Lambhill? Was that across from the graveyard?
I think we called it Paradise, no to far after you crossed the canal bridge, on the right hand side?
