Vintage Cruiser....YES Please!


Are you stuck inside during this freezing blizzard that has seemingly taken over the majority of this country?  For those of you out there in the world living in places and currently enjoying warm sunny weather...I am beyond envious of you!  So, since the weather has decided to play jokes on me and is now in the single digits; I'm snuggled up and dreaming of warm sunny days and vintage beach cruisers!

I think one could be my perfect accessory!  Some girls like tiny dogs to carry around in bags, I want a vintage bike!  It would be perfect on a beach, in the Tuscan countryside, or at a cafe patio-side.  Even if I didn't get to ride it I would enjoy just looking at it!  Oh yes, it would go everywhere with me and we would be the bestest pals!  However, this is also what I said when I was 11 and tried to convince my mom to buy me a horse.  I thought at the time my main arguments were rock solid.  However, upon further evaluation there may have been some kinks in my plan.  I told her she would save time daily by not running carpool because my horse would take me and would be just fine tied up outside of school.  I also said if she would get me this horse I wouldn't need a car when I was 16.  THANK the LORD this was one wish I was not granted.  My 16 year old self is very, very thankful!

Vintage cruisers came into popularity in the 30's and 50's, and I believe that when anyone rides one they instantly feel as if they are in the movie Shag or The Notebook (some of my favorites)!  So, as I sit here daydreaming I'm thinking how wonderful it would be to ride my bike with my family on a sweet and sunny day with a picnic in tow, as well as one of our fabulous retro tablecloths so all park-goers could marvel at our swankiness!

Here are a few sites I found with my loves!

  13. Here is the deal—just like with anything else in this world and unfortunately especially on the internet you are going to find that for every legitimate web site out there offering you hundreds of dollars of consistent income per day there are 20 more that are a bunch of broken promises.
