1974 Sears Free Spirit

(Click for full photo)


1974 Sears Free Spirit This is my 1974 Sears "Free Spirit" Racing bike. I got it about 4 years ago from my best friend who bought it for around 20$ at a garage-sale. It is in very good shape, it is all stock, and rides good. It is my main transportation since I cannot drive cars due to some health issues. It keeps me in good shape, and since I live in a small Texas town where there are bike lanes pratically everywhere, its enviromentally good, it~s easy for me to handle and I love it.

1948 Monark Gene Aurty Late 40~s 24" Gene Autry. Original horn, pistol, even spokes. Found in attic missing pretty much everything. (saddle,horn,bars,seat,crank) It was real bad. Hand built pretty much everything. Very exact, Picture does no justice. Husband had us restore it for his wife for a Christmas gift. Needless to say she was very emotional as her dad owned a Firestone in southern Ohio and gave it to her as a child.

1987 Univega Gran Rally

(Click for full photo)


1987 Univega Gran Rally This Univega Gran Rally I found in a shop that the owner had planned to fix up to sell, but had not gotten around to. He let me have it for $85.00, then threw in another old beater that is a long term project bike for me. I can not find much information about the Univega, but it has Shimano 600 components. All I have had to do to it to make it my wife~s ride was adjust the bars and add new tape. She really likes it, but we may have to replace the Italian Leather seat with one that is more female specific. The Univega does not fit me, but it actually rides and shifts a little better than the Trek.
