The first of the bicycles I’ve owned over the years.

1974-1976. My first bicycle! A present for my tenth birthday, it was stolen under two years later when I was 12, from my primary school, eventually the police recovered the bare frame in the garage of some local high-school students.

Memory is hazy, but it was yellow, had a sparkly-yellow banana seat, and a three-speed hub and dragster shift on the top tube.
