Here is the third white OTS in as many days. This time it’s an OTSG First GrantSport Squire sent to us by Mike P.
1972 Grantsport Squire 10 speed I found this one late Winter night searching Craigslist in Central N.J. the bike is kind of heavy and rides like a ‘Varsity’ or a Ross ‘Eurotour’ has that big easy to take apart bottom end/ crank that needs no special tools. Dia comp. brake levers with SAC steel center pulls Shimano Eagle/Thunderbird control the chain Wald 6112 style pedals, SR stem, Troxel seat reads made in Moscow Tenn. U.S.A. Vittoria 1″ 1/8th tires were squeezed onto the stock no name steel wheels Pie plate & shifters both have that early ‘333’ mark from the Shimano dark ages, Shimano Freewheel & big chain ring have a skip tooth pattern that points to Olney Illinois AMF plant as it’s birth place. W.T. Grants Dept. store went out of business around 1975-76 Who could resist a line up of Squire 10 – speeds outside a Grants store on a Spring day in 1972?
