Diamond steel frame with tubular rims, fenders, and foam-cushioned saddle. These came in two sizes, 19” or 21” with the option of coaster brake, 2-speed, or 3-speed. 3-speed was the only version to have handbrakes. This example has a 3-speed rear hub and black paint.
Colors: black, radiant sky blue, or flamboyant red.
Retail price in 1966 was $43.95 for coaster brake version or $51.95 for 2 or 3-speed.

Hey, Jim. I always enjoy reading your posts, but I thought I should mention that something is wonky with your new format. I’m unable to like your posts, instead getting a “loading” message in the “Like this” section. I’ll still keep reading, of course, but I thought I should mention it…
Thanks for letting me know.
