    Puch garage find, need help identifying

    Hey ya'll. Just got this Puch 27" fork/frame for 10.00 and I was hoping someone could help me identify the model and its estimated value. It has a suntour parts set. The derailer reads "suntour gt-7." Even after all these years in a dusty garage, this little lady shifts like a dream.

    Anyone who wants to drop a knowledge fart up in this gets a beer on me.

    It's worth about what you paid for it, not because it's bad, but because there's a glut of 10 speeds on the market. The lugged frame is a step above the gas pipe bikes of the era. Sears sold these bikes under their Free Spirit brand.

    If I were you, I'd just fix it up and ride it. IMHO, these are some of the best readily-available 10 speeds around.

    Hard to name the model with what I can see but if you look at sites with scanned copies, you might find it.

    Hey - These bikes ride great - SEARS Free Spirit or Ted Williams Circa 1974 - Its got a long frame and will be a very comfortable ride - I like them... Heres a pic of its Step-Through frame finished out from the parts bin... By the way, this bike is a sleeper - I have had friends over that took it out for a ride and at return said it handled as good and fast as a road bike...
