And last night I was looking on the internet to see if I could get replacement decals to put on after restoration. I stumbled on to this... http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/27614-my-first-pick-it-is-a-corvair-bycicle
So I start looking at the pictures that the person posted and at about the second one (after thinking "huh, the basket is bowed out just like mine and there is a tear in the seat just like mine...) I realized I was looking at pictures of my bike. Now I'm on a path to see if that person will respond and then I would be curious to know where they bought the bike. Looks like they bought it from the original owner.
