The Mighty "Free Spirit"

This is my steed.

Actually, it's my sisters, but she'll never use it, and my parent's keep it as another thing they'll never use. One day, I needed transportation, and my real bike was distant, so I fixed this gem up in a few minutes. I tried to lose all the extraneous crap, to pare the weight down around 75 pounds. Then I splattered the rusty chain with household oil. Keeping the nice purple finish, my only addition is the tripod holder, which is made out of two bungee cords. It works, it's gotten be where I need to go, though above about 15 mph you really feel just how bent both wheel frames are. At 30 mph it's downright scary.
According to the stickers, this is Index equipped.
