Any Idea where this bike was sold from. This looks like my old bike when I was a kid. I am from Indiana. My father traded it to a guy for a mini bike.So he told me. Looks the same down to the crappy blue paint job. Had a pair of plastic rims also with it.

Bike was purchased for a Bike shop in Ebensburgh PA years ago (used)... The paint on the bike was actually factory and in good shape...

Re: 1977 Peddlepower

Thanks for posting this great Powerlite, it really inspired me to build my own!!!

Does it have the square brake bridge or more of a butterfly brake bridge?  Is the seat post the standard 7/8 or the smaller 13/16?
