My aunt bought the bike through the old grocery store stamp program that ran in the 60s--you got green stamps at stores like Chatham and took them to a redemption center to get stuff like lamps, books and bikes. (If this doesn~t sound familiar, ask your parents or grandparents or anyone over the age of 50.) She rode it in the neighborhood, and it had a front handlebar basket that she used when she would ride up to the corner store to get milk or other goodies
