1987 Open Road Turbo Z2200

Montgomery Wards Freestyle!!

Looks like a Gt Performer hooked up with a Mongoose Decade and made this thing.

Got this with 3 other bikes from a large barn find in the country for next to nothing.
Cleaned it up.
Added new chain, mags, brake, and these crazy tires.

I like thes old cheap-o department store bikes.
I think it looks good.
It rides good too! Solid bike. Not too heavy.
My daughters like to ride it, and Im sure my neighbors enjoy seeing the 43 year old man riding a pink "kids" bike up and down the street.

B%%%h at me about riding on the sidewalk and I'll put my bike through your windshield. Bike lanes are death traps.
