    Restored Sears Spyder

    I had fun restoring this Spyder for my grandson. It’s even more fun watching him clean and polish this bike. He really takes care of it. Although his buddies are riding fixies or modern bikes, he rides his Spyder. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sears Spyder Excel Brake Spring

    Hello All, Recently restored a late 60’s Sears Spyder with rear dual brake system. The only problem I’m having is finding parts for the Excel brakes such as the spring. Anyone out there have one? I’ll post some pics of the bike later today. Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Chrome Wheel Cleanup

    The bike is in pieces. Broke it down to clean up all the chrome parts, wheels and replace all the bearings. The bike was very rusty, but amazingly everything is cleaning up really well. I always forget to take before and after pictures. Maybe next time. Here’s a few pics. Sent from my...

    Shimano 333 Derailleur

    This derailleur is for a Sears Spyder 10 speed bike. The one on the bike is rusted pretty bad. I managed to clean it up and it’s ok, but would love a better looking one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
