    I’m looking to restore my fathers old 10-speed free-spirit! I was wondering if you knew where I could find a set of Original Decals for it. I was also wondering if the tires are easy to come by?

    I don’t know of anywhere that makes decals for free spirits. I’ve been toying with the idea of making them myself with Avery clear sheet stickers and my inkjet printer. As for tires, that’s easy, Niagra Cycle Works on Amazon has great prices on tires and thing. You will probably need 26×1-3/8 or 27×1-1/4.

    I rode a 1976 bicentenial edition sears free spirt from Balto. Md. to Tampa Fla. in 1979. It was stolen in Tampa. I was 18 alone had nothing. I’d like to have another silver model like it. I rode 110 miles one day and 120 the next. The trip took 2 weeks 3 days. I just got up one morning packed some stuff and my savings and took off.

    This is identical to the bie that I have. I am planning on turing it into a fixed gear bike. Do you have any idea if a newer (different) style crankset will fit on the bike. If so, how exactly do I take the cranks off?

    After my bike got stolen yesterday, someone on Craigslist offered to give me their OTS for free. Turns out it is this exact bicycle! Picked it up this morning and I already love it. I’m wondering what year-range these bicycles came from? I want to be as accurate as possible when sending my information to my new bike lock company. 🙂

    I just recently purchased a 1970’s women’s Sears Free Spirit. I don’t know much about bikes and there is not much information on the internet that I could find on it. I need new tires but I don’t know what size and what type of tires. Could anyone help me out here?

    thanks for your time!

    Hey! This is the same exact bike that I asked for three years in a row for Christmas/guess either Santa couldn’t fit it on his sleigh or I was really bad. lol Either way I have always wanted one and in this exact pretty blue color. Is this bike still for sale? If you have already sold it do you know where I could possibly get one? Long shot I know. Just let me know or you can e mail me at reneemw69@yahoo.com

    I just got a sears and roebuck free spirit ten speed bike. It has the rack on the back and it is green with white pin stripping. It appears to have all the labels on it with either brown or white wall tires. Can anyone tell me the appropriate age of this bike and how much it might be worth. The low high cable did not work but I fixed that . It has a red light on the back of the seat and a white one on the front. It also has white spoke lights. Thanks in advance for the help. Roger. The green one listed below is the one that have.
