    Firenze Gl5000

    Last bike for today. Dad said he got this for free back in the 80's, lol came free with a purchase of a stereo so im thinking its not worth much. It still works but isn't as smooth and nice as my ironmans. Has Dunlap cranks and derailleurs. And its pretty heavy.

    yes those were the famous freebie bikes that were given away "free" with the purchase of a TV, Stereo or a home appliance, apparently all over the US. If you grew up in the SF Bay Area it was "Matthew's, Top of the Hill, Daly City" where you got yours. Total crap, I thought at the time but hey: the price was right, and yours still runs...very interesting shifter placement, BTW.
