Basic bike boom bike, hopefully you got a good deal on it.

Might be an allright ride once it's cleaned up and greased.

Free! There was a Raleigh Grand Prix with it. The brake center pull is the same style as the Raleigh's. That half loop piece seems like a lot of work for a boom bike. I will check it over for #'s, and go from there. I love these old mystery bikes!

I hope you grabbed the Raleigh as well, it'll be ten times the bike.

Typical department store bike from the bike boom. Little/no value. There were thousands of brands back then.
