Of all the bicycles I owned, my favorite was a sting-ray called the “Kool Kats Lemon Twist”. It had everything; chopper-style handle bars with coiled-spring suspension over a small front tire and center-hub disc brake, flaring chrome fenders, bright yellow paint with bold graphics and, of course, a banana seat and sissy bar. I was the envoy of the neighborhood! Then one day the bike was stolen from our garage. As I recall it was the only thing missing. My gallant father bought me another bicycle the very next day at the local hardware store. It was a sad replacement though – anything less than the Kool Kats Lemon Twist was just another bike.
