My New Bike!
June 4, 2011 § 4 Comments
During the summer $10 goes a long way:
‘Tis the season for bike riding, farmer’s markets, and picnics. Outdoor activities are a staple of summer, and unless you have a convertible, driving in a car to your destination seems like such a waste of precious time!
The people we bought it from said it had been sitting in their garage – unused – for almost 20 years! Tires, seat, and chain are all original.
Edit: In researching I found out that this Free Spirit bike is called “Sheffield” and was sold at Sears Roebuck in the mid 1970’s. Pictures of this bike’s brothers & sisters reveal that both tires were probably originally yellow-wall, so my front tire must be a replacement. In any case, at $10 this bike was a steal.
