I don't usually pull trash bikes from the side of the road. However with the snow, I stopped after seeing this bike in the snow for well over week. It was full of leaves, rotted tires - trash condition.
The reason that I pulled it was because I saw a crane RD. Plan was to pick the crane RD, take everyting else to the dump.
I pulled the wheels. Noticed that the front drop-outs were shimano. There were adjustment screws in the back. Wait a second...this frame seem light.
Where I'm at - except for the RD and some weinmann center pulls and the frame. All parts are in the trash. The front stem is frozen. I can't get the front stem out.
BF search came up with this:
Not my pics - but the bike is exactly (same color, everything) like attachments:
My question - what is a 531 ted williams free spirit frame worth? I don't really need it but wanted to trade it for parts in the BF marketplace. Condition is marginal. Bottom bracket is tange - but needs overhaul.
