More than a Purple Huffy

Of course it wasn't a Shelby or a Schwinn, but its metal-flake sparkled and it had a nifty slick on the back with red pin-stripes embedded in the sidewalls. I had saved some of my paper route money to pay for it and even had a little cash left over for a new Cadet speedometer.

I remember more about that speedometer than I do the bicycle, I think because it was an important way of marking my path.
