When I first saw today’s entry, I thought it was an update entry from Jared and his $5 Free Spirit. After further inspection I realized that, no, this was not Jared’s FSTS but in fact an identical twin. James in Ohio is the proud owner this Free Spirit—complete with DELUXE gel seat cover. Both James and Jared’s bikes share some features not too often seen on bike of this caliber.
Wing-nut front hubs: I thought they quit putting these on bikes sometime in the 60s.
Triangle reflectors and elongated spoke reflectors: Nothing special really, I just never see them.
Center-pull brakes: Again, nothing special, but I would not have expected them.
