Calling the bicycle enthusiasts

Recommended Posts

I know from previous threads there are a few guys here that are into bicycles as well. I was thinking of putting one of those motorized kits on this for the son when he’s a little older, but know nothing about these bikes. I don’t want to do something to it if it’s of any real value. 

Im going to do some digging but thought it was worth a shot to ask here too.

Twenty inch bikes with the banana seat were all the rage when I was a young teen.That was many decades and wrinkles ago.

I would’ve rather had one like that than what I had as a kid. My dad and his siblings bikes were what we rode at our lake place, mostly Stingrays, and I always preferred those bikes to the one at home.

:eusa-think: Can't remember ever running across a Columbia banana seat following...

so, it seems like the perfect candidate to me.  :confusion-shrug:

Why motorise it? He'd be fitter peddling it. Mind I've some room to talk. Only been out on my bike once this year. :rolleyes:

I gotta agree.

Use a calorie or two and have fun.

 

I had several BMX/freestyle bikes when in my teens and 20s.

When I was young one of my sisters had a bike with a banananananana seat. I used to love it for it's balance and the ability to ride wheelies.

 

Nowadays I have a collection of 26" bikes.

A few road bikes and a few mountain bikes.

All older stuff. (80s, 90s)

 

We only get to riding them a couple times a year because of doing a zillion other activities.

 

I'd say give it a tune-up and some new rolling stock and toss him on it.

I liked the idea of putting the motor on it for the “Cool dad/ I wish I’d had one” factors to be completely honest 🤷🏻‍♂️ Haha. 

 

Also to foster mechanical work and/or racing as possible shared interests down the line.

 

Im not worried about him being in shape, the kid runs laps when he’s bored. 😂
