Cottered Crank Week rolls on with this OTSG First: Richard D’s Libertas Mann (or is it Mann Libertas)?
Liberated Libertas from mom’s garage. I bought this in 1969 (around $80 with tax I think) and it’s pretty much exactly as it was then (including the Englewood license plate, not shown) except for the HB tape and new tires. It was hanging in a dry Englewood, CO garage for many years. Just used a little soap and water and chain oil on it. Runs good as new! Front Simplex plastic derailleur is cracked but works. The original tire pump is probably still in the garage or basement somewhere. Enjoy the pictures!
