Laura Wallace and her new bike

Laura was looking for some economical transportation and found this Free Spirit within her budget. Brought it in to Vics for an evaluatioin and to get it up and rolling. The origional drive train was rather primitive and needed alot of work. On the upside, the tires had been replaced recently and were ok. The decision was made to remove the shifters, derailleurs, and shift cables. Replace the 5 speed cluster with a new singlespeed freewheel, fit a new chain and brake pads. Laura is now enjoying her vintage singlespeed conversion that didnt break the bank.
