Re: Hooray I got the Sears free spirit working!
Congratulations! Bike Bugs were my first foray into motorized bicycles. They can be fussy to bring back from the dead, but once alive again run nicely. The key to keeping them running is to use them. Let them sit and the little whatzits dry out and as you know the little whatzits are not so easy to find.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
