Joe B. is hard at work rehabbing again. This time, it’s an OTSG first, a Montgomery Ward Open Road. Lugged frame, chocolaty metallic paint, plush foam grips—of which I have not sung enough praises lately—and a “quilted” period saddle. NAHBS, eat your heart out.
Talk about, “If your bike came from a now defunct department store in the mid ’70s.” – THIS IS IT! A Montgomery Ward “Open Road” 10 speed; complete with original steel wheels and “Old School” 26 X 1-3/8″ gum wall tires. I picked it up for $10, because the guy basically wanted it out of his basement. After two days of cleaning & tweaking, it works fine!
Thanks again Joe
