A few weeks ago I scored a monumental find at an estate sale here in Nashville. I can’t really build up any mystery because I definitely titled this post “I have a new bike” sooooo… guess what I found!!!
Kidding. I found a bike. My best guess is it’s from the late 70s. Sears. Free Spirit. Here it is.
It’s in surprisingly good shape and is 90% ready to ride. I took it to a local bike shop where I was given the only unfortunate news so far…. they can’t find a tire or tube that would fit this bicycle. The good news? I only need tubes and tires and the bike is good to go. The gears shift. The brakes work. It’s fantastic. After riding with my friends a few months ago, I’ve had a real itch to get back out on a bike, so I’m pumped for this one.
Patience is a virtue since we’re heading into winter but I think by March and April I’ll have new tires and be rockin’ around my neighborhood like it’s 1975!
