It was the best bike in the world. A hand-me-down pink and white Huffy bike that my friend’s parents bought in the States. My parents couldn’t afford a new bike for me, but this was way better than any new bike could ever be. This was a pink Huffy bike. No one else in Winnipeg had one. In fact, I never saw a bike like this before and have not seen once since – other than when I Google it for nostalgia’s sake.
