I believe this represented a new way to get high at the time.
No relation to seller. Distinctly not my frame size, but someone out there wants to give this a home, I would think. No bids yet. Seller writes he bought it at "what used to be Harris Hardware in Newton, Mass." --which as much as anything else about this listing caused me to want to share it. That can only be Sheldon's Harris Cyclery, right?
Seems a bargain at $50 but you may need platform shoes.

P.S. I wonder: will the next owner save / keep the bar tape? I probably would have changed it to cloth almost immediately back in '72 (except that I was too young to hold any opinions like that yet).
