WANTED:   Sears Free Spirit 10 speed posted by: Bonnie Blaschke on 2/22/2007 at 10:44:32 AM
Hi, I would like to buy an as original as possible, men's bike from the mid 70's that is not very expensive. A couple of my friends had one when I was a teen and I always loved them. I saw a picture of one in an ad for sale on Ebay. Link to pic below. I would really like the white one with the red & blue trim. Thanks.

There is a blue one sitting at my local Salvation Army Store. Buying it would be cheap, getting it shipped from north western ND would be expensive.

Shipping isn't the worse thing to me. It is just being sure that it is the right bike. I have been watching ebay for quite some time and have seen some models on there that are the upright, straight-handlebar type. I want the curly-bar road type. I haven't seen one on ebay yet to fit the bill. There is one on there right now that is really strange, it has an hydraulic braking system. I really don't want anything like that.

Took my camera and went to the SA store, but the bike was already gone. If they are any good, they don't last long at those prices. Sorry.

hey bonnie,
I think I have one of those bikes you are talking about. Its a grayish color with white patches that have red and blue striping. Even if these bikes were inexpensive, I have held on to this bike because the frame is uncharacteristcally (sp?) light. I mean, this frame is super light. Its unreal that a frame this light was probably sold for so cheap (relatively) in the 1970s. I try to post a picture of it if you want?
