1 of my grand-daughters got through 3 years at Oregon State before her Raleigh Retroglide with 7 spd IGH was stolen. Her dad & I dug a Free Spirit out of his basement. A $10 Goodwill find I gave to her mom 10 or 12 years ago. Shiny metallic blue paint, Chromed steel wheels and bars, not a bit of rust. Probably only ridden around the block 2X in its lifetime(once by original owner + once more by daughter-in-law).

We cleaned it up for the 2nd time, lubed, adjusted and added a Pletscher rack. Grand-daughter gave it heavy use for a few months before its shininess attracted another thief. I'm sure it is still rolling along somewhere, they are good basic transportation and great bang for the buck. Don
