Re Johnny Mc's request.
As U know we lived just up the street from Allain's store.
I don't remember a "Zoom-Zoom" but I do remember a guy who fits that description as " Ti-Paul".
He also had an empty cigarette package attached by a clothes pin to the fork of his bike.
When the wheel turned the spokes hit the cig pack and made a "Motor Sound".
I think those bikes with the baskets that held 2 x 24's were unique to QC.
They were later immortalized in "Balconville".
Thanks Ralph B.
