Cheap Eatons Glider
I’ve done a quick rebuild on this one. Originally a 5 speed, I bought the frame for $20.00 and spent as little as possible to put it back together. Not much to look at but it rides fine and stops…
The rear wheel has a 1968 Sturmey Archer Coaster hub and there’s a single caliper on the front.
Total cost on this one:
Frame @ $20.00
Back Wheel and tire @ $10.00
2 cotter pins @ $2.00
Supplies @ $5.00
Everything else was either on the frame or came from pieces in the shed.
Frame also came with a nice period kickstand which will migrate over to one of my bikes in need.
This will either go to a former student (at cost) or be a loaner for a friend who’s coming to visit.
