This is the first bike we built up as part of bicyclery.  It was really fun taking this old Free Spirit and turning it into something that is stylish and fun to ride.

Originally a cheap department store bike complete with pressed dropouts one piece bottom bracket and possitron shifter.


We single speeded it and gave it a pair of bullhorns.

We converted the bike to a single speed, and gave it a pair of bullhorns.


You can take freewheel hubs apart and convert them to single speed ones.


We were able to build it up to be, in my opinion, substantially better then it was originally.


Faster, lighter, simpler; stylish, and really fun to ride.
