Billy Joel and Bono Sidecar Story and his 60th Birthday Bike


Billy Joel and Bono Sidecar Story and his 60th Birthday Bike at 20th Century Cycles in Oyster Bay! I took the subway, the train and a couple of wrong turns in between to get there and it was worth it. Alex (Billy's mechanic), met me at the train station and we walked to the shop just a couple of blocks away. Oyster Bay is so different from Midtown Manhattan, NY where my family and I were staying. Once I walked into the shop I was shocked to see how many bikes Billy actually owns and I'm told that's not his entire collection. With all of the makes and models to check out there were two that I focused on because I loved the story behind the Stella Scooter with Bono Of U2, in the sidecar and the Vincent that Billy got as a gift for his 60th birthday.
