Bob in Virgina sent in this fine example of pure department store 10-speed.Â As Bob points out, this Sears Free Spirit features the original coordinating bar wrap and and matching saddle.Â Bob is a re-cyclist like our friend Hugh in Michigan, and is offering this beauty for $100.Â I see at least a couple hundred OTS every week for sale on various boards and online classifieds. Most are overpriced and in very questionable condition compared to what Bob and Hugh produce.Â If you’re in the market for a new old ten speed make sure you buy from an OTS Specialist (OTSS) and you won’t be sorry.
You may be tired of seeing old free spirits but I thought this one was nice with the original bar tape and matching saddle. Still has all the sparkling chrome and positron shifters, what more could you ask for in a ten speed. I recycle bikes in my area and in the last year have put close to 200 bikes back on the streets where they should be.
