So I started the day like any other, with a big helping of coffee. Then I planned a trip to the local thrift store where I picked up my first Free Spirit ever which is missing the front wheel but otherwise complete. It cost me $6 + tax so it was worth it to be finally able to try my hand at creating a fix gear. I'm surprised by how heavy this thing is though!
Anyhow, on the way home I drove by this garage sale and saw a bike in a stand, looking all dejected. Took a look at it and played haggle with the owner and walked away with it for $30. Most intriguing thing I've ever owned vintage-wise;
Looks nice, not a SPOT of rust on the entire thing. But here are the weird things...has anyone any idea what these hangers are for?
And these are the second set of these pedal I've run into. Why are they always facing down? On both my bikes that have had them >.>
And what the heck is with this!?!? It looks like an old 1980's RX-7 rim... It's kinda cool though!
Anyhow, I was wondering if anybody out there could tell me about this bike. It's a Sekai 1000 Series and that's all I know. It's my first Sekai, worth keeping? thinking about flipping.

Thanks for the help!
