1980 Free Spirit 24

1980 Free Spirit 24 in sad shape. Classic white house paint.

Roadside junk store find. Might not be a top of the line brand, but more kids had these that Moongoose ECT!. Strange it is a 24in cruiser.

Re: 1980 Free Spirit 24

I left on in Ishfahan, Iran at the USAF base back in 1979! Your right about more kids having these than expensive bikes!  I had a 20" but it was white and red and represented everything bmx! 

What are your plans with this bike, full resto, full custom, rider?

Nice find!

That bike was most likely made by Murray.  It looks just like my Team Murray X24k, with simillar parts as well.


Grammar is important. Capital letters are the difference between helping your Uncle Jack off a horse, and helping your uncle jack off a horse.

Free Spirit 24 was made by Murry and Free Spirit decals slapped one it. So yes and no! It is a Free Spirit 24, made by Murry.
