    I don’t know how you do it, Bill. That’s a cool bike. What about that pump and the getting-hard-to-find clamp-on pump peg?

    Hey Trailer Park Cyclist, I call it a gift! My wife calls a curse!!! I have a awful lot of bikes! I don’t turn any bikes down! A neighbor rolled this one over! Without a little bit of work, I have run out of room for any more bikes! I still have some more promised for the end of the summer! Storage is relatively expensive for a useful size storage unit! I have started giving some bikes away. It’s tough , every bike has a story! My grandaughter gave me a plaque that says..”There is a thin line between a hobby and mental illness!” Kinda funny!

    Cool! I just finished restoring a three-speed Vista Cavalier (http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6077/6067134937_0866c33942_z.jpg) for my next door neighbor. Research on the marquee yielded just about zip, so it’s nice to know this thing isn’t a figment of my imagination!

    I’ve got a Vista tandem, too! World’s most dangerous tandem! Horrible engineering! OK for kid,… light kids! Not good for adult size people! The bike resists turning with adults in the seats! Nice patina though! Kinda reddish!

    Just cleaned and lubed Vista Esquire, same color, white. It was dirty, rusty and dinged up. Now it is just dinged up and a little rust. Nice components. It will be for sale in St. Louis, MO

    Hey Hey Roger,

    I haven’t seen mine since it made it to this site! I will be sorting out my bikes soon! Snow is comong! It is a great riding bike! It always gets attention! Even in a large gruop of bikes! Good luck with sale! Any idea what you may be looking to get for it?
    Bikes like these don’t seem to have a season!

    I have it listed on Craigslist St. Louis for $35.00. I rescued it from a disinterested owner for $5.00. All I did was clean the heck out of it, lubed, replaced a rear axle with one I had available from an old wheel and a brake cable. I purposely avoided putting hard cash into it so I could put a low price and sell it fast. My wife keeps shaking her head every time she come out to the garage and counts the old bikes!

    Yes you will see this babe on the road! I still ride mine all the time. Thousands of miles gone, and yet to go!
    Bought mine brand new, and still love this one.
