Here to greet us this morning is another OTS from the stable of Eric H. This our second (or maybe third)Sears Ted Williams Free Spirit, or a Theodore Billy for short.
Attached are pix of my mid-1970′s Sears Roebuck Ted Williams Free Spirit 10-speed. Back from the days when we named bikes after baseball legends and USMC fighter pilots.
This is a Goodwill purchase that needed only new rubber in back, lubrication, and a new rear brake cable to be brought up to operational status.
Riding it, the feel is steady and solid, but you can get up to some nice speeds as well. Sort of like a Schwinn Varsity and almost as heavy. Wheels in excellent condition, not even needing to be trued. Looks like this beast got very little use back in the day, which is typical of these bike boom machines, and is now ready to take a new rider onward to his dreams.
OK, have a great day!
Thanks again Eric
