This is my brother’s old bicycle, which I am rehabbing just enough to regain my bicycle riding prowess. It’s been a long time coming, but I think I am ready to hit the road/trail on a bicycle again. I had a similar one, which I got in 1978 after my American Bicentennial Free Spirit was stolen, and rode the heck out of it until 1985, when my younger cousin broke the gears on it. I never fixed it, as I was a poor, broke college student at the time and really didn’t have much time to ride anyway. I left it to the elements for about 10 years and it slowly rusted to the point that I put it on the curb for the metals gleaners or some bike restorer to grab it.
