Larry Johnston & Ivan the Gorilla® circa 1964 at the B&I Circus Store.

The Solex Electric Bicycle company wanted to introduce their new motorized bicycle & feature a photo shoot with Ivan for commercial purposes. Ivan & I would take many adventures together, but he had especially loved to ride on motorcycles with me. Therefore, it was natural for him to hop on my shoulders & take this opportunity to go for a spin on this new bike.
Typically, when we rode motorcycles together, he would stand on the back of the seat, wrap his arms around my neck, & enjoy the wind in his little fuzzy head.
