Another Free Spirit Question

Hey ya'll brand new to this forum. My registration e-mail is still cooling off in the inbox.

I recently found a 10 speed Free Spirit while cleaning out an attic, (along with 400 records from the 60's/70's story for a different forum) and the bike is in excellent shape. Has a magneto/light combo that also appears to be in working order. Looked like it had been sitting there for about 30 years.

The reason I'm posting this is that the bike has a factory rear brake line that runs through the tube. No matter how I google it I can't find an old free spirit with an in-tube rear brake line. Just curious if this was so standard that no one mentions it or if this is an odd detail. I had a free spirit as a daily rider 10+ years ago and don't remember anything special about it aside from constant adjustment of the derailleurs.

Have tried to upload a few pictures and it's giving me problems. Won't upload at a smaller file size either. Anything ya'll know about the bike is appreciated.
