I wish we could keep every hip bicycle we came across because it's so hard to let them go. Alli has had this bike since 2008 and we have grown very attached to it. A while ago, I did some research on the company that made the bike. I found out that this Britanny Free Spirit bike was produced sometime in the 70's and was sold by Sears and Roebuck. Good-buy old gal, we had some good times.
