Rode this one for 20 miles after not riding it for decades.  The 54/44/34 Mighty Tour Triple brings back why the 13, 14, 15, 20, 23, 26 Winner freewheel had to be constructed.  The 18 non-redundant ratios give you 5% (more or less) one shift away for many shifts.   It was just the thing on those long Kansas (ride west to east), Iowa (same, with some hills), Wyoming, Alabama, etc. roads. Thanks go out to a careful Pricetronicer who informed me that this is a Sears Free Spirit Ted Williams model made by Puch in Austria. The frame is full Reynolds 531 tubing - frame and fork, though the stickers were gone in 1981 when I got the frame.  It is still as ugly as when it was traded in.  The 42 3/4" wheelbase makes for comfortable rides day after day, particularly so when loaded down with the tent, sleeping bag, and foam rollup.   The top tube effective length is 23 1/4" center to center. The frame is in great physical (not cosmetic!) condition.  It has a kickstand bracket! Campagnolo front and rear dropouts. Flat crown. The bottom bracket is English (1.370 x 24 tpi) threading. The headset is a Tange Levin. The Mighty Tour has 54/44/34 chainrings.  The170mm arm crankset works great.  The bottom bracket is a Campagnolo Record Triple. The derailleurs are Shimano Crane GS rear, SunTour Cyclone clamp on front, and SunTour clampon shifters.  There is a rare bolt on Campagnolo cable guide.  They work as they should. The wheels are Campagnolo Tipo Large flange 36 hole hubs with Campagnolo skewers.   They are English threaded (1.370 x 24) for the Winner freewheel and were built up with alloy 27" Super Champion Competition rims (presta valves) using SS spokes in a 3X pattern.  The tires hold pressure. Time Sport pedals. DiaCompe top tube brake cable clips hold the brake cable down.  The sidepull brakes are Compagnolo Nuovo Record.  One rubber ring is missing. The AFA bolton pump clip is included.  The Zefal pump is NOT included. The Weyless seatpost has a Avocet Touring I seat installed.  The seatpost bolt is Sugino. The handlebar is a Nitto Universade and stem is a Cinelli 8cm.  The brake handles are drilled Universal with decent hoods. The fenders are Blumels.  The front has the bottom broken off. Yes, that's a generator for the lights.  The front light is broken off.  Vibration on dirt roads will do that. Shipping is included for the lower 48. At the new, lower price, it is sold "AS IS". Shipping to Hawai'i and Alaska will be greater than the fixed shipping cost.  Please inquire as to the actual cost. It has finally come to this. You are buying a used bike. There may be some new components, but it is a used bike. All bikes are ridden before shipping. The bike will be disassembled for shipping. The handlebars will be removed. The brifters will be covered in bubblewrap. The ‘bars, with cables attached, will be looped back over the top tube, which will be covered with pipe foam or lots of bubblewrap, and attached to the top bar with zip ties. Though this will help the parts survive the shipping, the cables and housings will be stressed enough to throw all adjustments off. Thus it is likely that the brakes and derailleurs will need adjustment upon arrival and reassembly. You will receive my phone number to help with the reassembly and adjustment processes to ensure that the bike works as it should. The seat, seat tube, and pedals (if included) will be removed. They will be wrapped in bubble wrap so that they will not damage the frame when they bounce around. The frame and fork blades will be wrapped to prevent damage. The chain will be wrapped with the chain on the inmost gearing. Note that to get the chain there, the right brifter had to be working. The front wheel will be removed. The quick release will be used to help protect the fork ends during shipping. The front wheel axle ends will be protected with bubble wrap or foam which will be taped in place. The front wheel will go into its own cardboard box next to the left side of the frame which is the the bike box. The right side of the frame will have three layers of cardboard between it and the outside to prevent damage to the frame and the drivetrain. Bike boxes are reused for shipping. There may be holes in the box from a previous shipper’s poor packing. To reiterate – you are buying a used bike with a collection of used, and possibly new, components. It has been ridden. It has been disassembled for shipment. It will need to be reassembled and probably need adjustment before it will work as intended. You will receive my phone number to help achieve this end. If you expect perfection, please buy a new bike from your Local Bike Shop (LBS). The premium price that you pay will help them stay in business. Buying a new bike from the LBS will allow you to have the perfection that you expect. With dozens of bikes for sale, it makes no sense to mislead, upset, or tee off any customer. Please ask all questions before buying. I’ll do my best to answer. Again, it’s too bad that it has come to this, but that’s how things are. Ride Strong and Stay Safe!
