UPDATE (11/01/2011): This just in! Stevie requested that I update his Free Spirit with a picture of it’s most current configuration, which I have. Holy King Snake Batman!
Stevie J (formerly DirSirColon) submitted this Sears Free Spirit some time ago, and I’m only now getting around to posting it due to the frustration I got from a lengthy trip from one end of these handlebars to the other, only to end up in essentially the same location.
Sears fully lugged burgundy steel frame-made in Taiwan.(Giant?) It screamed retro, but begged for rebirth. Cottered crank replaced by Sugino two piece-as well as bars, seat and steel rims.(26 inch to 27 inch) Suntour drive train that includes both derailluers and stem shifters. Yard sale find with minimal cost yet monsterous potential…..”I should have a mental evaluation, or at least a credit check!” And always, age appropriate. I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride… Stevie J.
