I'd like to get everyone's opinion do you think I should install brakes? Not sure I'll get it up to speed enough where they are necessary but I understand they are required in some states. LOL!

Right now, I'd say air brakes.

The photo shows up fine in Firefox, but does not in Chrome for some reason. I even copied the URL directly into both browsers.

Here are a couple other images from a different page.

That looks a little like Roger Bannister on the bike there....

Gee- who knew Photoshop was around back then?

It actually is a French fella named Alfred LeTournerau . Wally Byam was hired to photograph him pulling an Airstream trailer in 1947, to demonstrate how light the trailer was. That photo is the iconic image Airstream Inc. still uses today to identify its product.

Sorry, I use firefox. LOL! Just got home from work and noticed all these smart alec comments. Then I saw they were all from Canadians, well, except for one from Northern Michigan, same difference. All I can say is I think the chill must be setting in. Everyone's getting a bit cranky up there eh.

Nu uh, Steve. All us Canuckleheads are not cranky. Smart Alecs, no doubt. And the cold is definitely settling in here.
