I had forgotten all about 'cow horn' handlebars. I remember customizing my pushbike as did your mates in around 66/67 to look the part. We thought we were the nuts. Must have been 13 years old and made up bikes from the local waste sites - did not have council tip then - Parents still could not afford to throw anything away!!
The lads look around 14 / 15 years old and smartly turned out. I reckon 1970 is right
You could not have your hair too short back then or you would never get a girlfriend - as the picture or another guard size down was acceptable or otherwise you were regarded as borstal material
Good photo bunty
That is how I got my Push Bike.Could not afford a new one,so we toured the Waste Sites.Believe me,I looked after as if it was new.
I think in `70 the Skinhead Cut was banned in Schools.Remember reading in a Paper,where a boy got sent home because of it."Come back when it had grown out".3 years later the Hair was longer and the Boys were still getting sent home from Shool-"Get your hair cut".No pleasing them,in those days....
