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.  ;)

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.

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.
