Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #83

Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #83 (On Sale: March 26, 1968) has a pretty cool cover by Neal Adams.

"Witch on Wheels" is by Frank Robbins, Irv Novick and Mike Esposito and marks Robbins' first work at DC. Lois writes a series of articles on a cycle gang called the Maniacs. However, she wants to get the inside information on the gang, so when the gang leader Kaiser Bill approaches her, Lois petitions to join the gang. The gang is reluctant to accept Lois as a biker. They require her to perform an initiation stunt of vandalism.

After Lois helps the gang, Superman gets involved by going undercover as cyclist King Cross. Secretly using his powers to perform riding stunts, Superman shows up Kaiser and tries to win leadership from him.
