Bob—owner of the cherry Sears Free Spirit in the hunt for May OTSOTM—has sent us another from his extensive collection of rescued road bikes. This little mixte, White’s Performer, is one mysterious little Miss. I only came across 3 other references to a White’s Performer on Google, and one of those is Bob’s for sale listing. As Bob points out in his email, this does appear to be a rebadged Huffy Aerowind, but I can’t come up with any supporting evidence. Oh well—call it what you want, but I just call it sweet.
Here’s another oddity. This looks like the same frame as the Huffy Aerowind but is badged “White’s Performer” Has the same pinched downtube and the same suede saddle as the Aerowind. Also has the same weird seat adjustment as the Aerowind. I love this site, keep up the good work!
