Thanks. I was hoping this would migrate to the states.

It's on YouTube though. Only 6 ten-minute clips. I kinda wished the narrator spent more time on the assembly and painting though, while not removing the history he shows. Lots of good classic rock that I remember from way back too. Smile

Frankly I wasn't aware that hippies started the mountain bike thing in California using modified cruisers. I only recall getting a "ten-speed" road bike in 1974 from the military base exchange because other friends did it to save gas money. I rode that bike almost 10 miles everyday. I can't say for sure what make-model it was but I think it might have been a low-priced Viscount (Lambert). In retrospect, I guess I am lucky to be alive (the death fork thing). Smile

They could have made a whole TV series out of that video.
