Price: I think it was around $300.00
Where: Beverly Hills Bike Shop on South Robertson Blvd near Charleville Blvd. Was the same place I bought my Puch Moped a couple of years later!
When: I believe it was 1973
To me it was an amazing thing with all 10 speeds it had!
My first "real" bike (that got me into cycling) was a Raleigh Gran Prix. But it was stolen from me a year or so later and I upgraded to a Bianchi Giro. Now I have a Specialized Roubaix. The Gran Prix was around $250.
I baught a Huffy at the local K-mart. I would not ride it much, maybe 2 miles , the wife had a Fuji and said I should get a good bike, is she sorry, since then I have baught 5 new bikes. Last year I put on over 4,000 miles.
