The Spaceliner caught my eye
in the window of a comic book store, outside Detroit.
It was one of the first few bikes
I rode in NYC.
It looked like new when I first got my hands on it.
now it is a velveteen rabbit of a bike.
Many miles and lots of love.
The photo is Amanda on her JC Higgins, Wendy on her Schwinn Typhoon
and Me on the Spaceliner circa 1998.
The painting is a 1study before the larger painting.
