I had a bike very similar back in the early 70s that I delivered papers on.
It was a Schwinn Runabout (goggle it) with 3 gears.
This was back in the day when we had an afternoon paper, the Capitol Journal, a morning paper, the Oregon Statesman which finally merged into the Statesman Urinal.
While delivering papers after school one day, I rode past the junior high baseball team practicing on the field. I went to jump off a high curb (with all of my papers hanging from a bag in front of the handlebars) and went ass-over-tea-kettle over the handlebars! Not one of my prouder moments.
The Runabout was a GREAT wheelie machine also!
