    Sweet!! That was my first bike when I was 6! I learnt how ride on it - my Dad even put training wheels on it for a bit - OMG. It had a tiger striped banana seat with the flat no tread (don't know the proper name) back tyre and had tiger handgrips (the ends had tiger heads on them and handle parts were the tiger body and striped) My Dad got it from a work friend of his. I dug it but initially got teased by the older kids b/c it wasn't a 'normal' bike. :rolleyes:

    Thanks so much for posting these pics. Tons of fun! You're right: prices aren't exactly low (or even reasonable). But I guess somebody is paying them...

    And who cares about Seymour Duncan! I hardly noticed him for the double-bound black Telecaster with a Bigsby right in front of him! :)

    Yeah! That's what we called them... I still can recall the thrill and terror when my Dad who was running along with me pedaling let go of the back of seat for the first time (training wheels off)
    Cheers for memories man!

    .

    Fantastic share!

    amazing pricing.

    I've been resurrecting an old Teisco Tulip the last few days and fun to see that (likely rare and top end model) Teisco stickered for $3,200.

    Flood damaged moldy LP even shows high numbers.

    Nice guitar and amps, but not for a common folk like me. Where were the $249.00 imports? I am a little tight. :)

    Hey Endless Mike, I remember that guy and his shop (I used to live in Lewisville). He did a setup on my first electric. Last I heard, he went to work for PRS.

    Not a strat guy, but I always dug those Leads. Local luthier makes some pretty good copies of them and charges more than a real one in clean shape would go for. That nice $800 tag would have got me in trouble.
