Banana Seat Bike!  I had one similar to this.  Mine was green and had four leaf clovers on the chain guard and it had a white seat.  It wasn't a 3 speed like I wanted and it didn't have hand brakes like I wanted.  It came from Monkey-Wards too.

Banana Seat Bike; this is the seat I had, along with a neon multi colored frame. People in cars would yell at me "nice bike!" All the time!

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 :)

Mine was gold, with a sparkly gold seat and sparkly gold streamers.  I also had a pink and white woven basket.

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.

Mine has teal metal flame paint, the basket with multi-colored plastic flowers on it and a white banana seat with the same flowers painted on it. I would love to have that bike again!
