Most aren't worth much. Look for the greenish gold one with the 531 frame.

Sears offered a Ted Williams signature model manufactured by Puch in Austria in Reynolds 531. It is probably the only Sears/Free Spirit road bike worth anything, but it's still not worth a whole lot because the preponderance of bikes sold by Sears were entry level at best.



It looked like ^ this. I believe it would have had a Brooks saddle originally.

It could be anything. Parts were swapped out regularly.
Measuring the seatpost diameter would be the surest way to tell if it's '531.
