Thanks for your interest, Tony, and your offer.  When I get info on how to set up a presentation (Paul, I guess), i'll be happy to have your help.  You are my friend, too once I figure out how to do that. Peg

Oh, very cool, thanks for the link. Ive heard mythical folklore about 'the guy who designed the Paramount' from Chicago but did not realize the shop was still in business. I will definitely have to drop in. So is your bike a Schwinn then? I am a bit disappointed its not Nasty's Cycles but the real story is very good in its own right.

Does that say 'Nasty's Cycle' or 'Hasty's Cycle' on your icon pic? Or none of the above?

Thanks,
