ampersands on Broadway #7: Ben at Happy Coffee

cute as a rat terrier - 1978 Swinger 2 by JC Penny

only a few steps north of the afore-pictured monster bike, here is "Swinger 2 by JC Penny" parked at Burnzwell, 108 S. Broadway

its affable owner offered that it was the 1978 model; the small displacement engine means it doesn't require license plates and may be legally parked on the sidewalk

owner unavailable for comment on this vehicle parked on the sidewalk outside Certified Customs (tattoo parlor) at 120 S. Broadway
