I miss my red Louison Bobet bike and I wish I had a photo of it! I cannot believe no one took a picture of me with it! I have looked on Google but cannot find one. Does anyone know where I can get one for my scrapbook?
My Dad got me a white Fugi bike for my high school graduation, but it was never the same as my first love!Here is some info from Wiki about Louison Bobet. He would have given Lance a run for his money!
