'The Look' bikes were actually MX bikes built by Murray and sold through Sears as Free Spirit badged bikes. The frame looks very similar to the Murray choppers of the late 1970's but it is different. The chopper had more of a rake at the head tube and therefore had a gusset welded there to strengthen the frame. I believe yours to be a 1976 model because of the square cutouts on the rear dropouts. 1977 and later bikes had solid rear dropouts.

Wow! That is great! I will have to research that. Do you think anyone would want this bike? I assume there isn't much of a following?

It's hard to tell from your picture but if that frame was originally silver then it was probably this bike:

This was the 1978 version. Notice the solid rear dropouts. They also changed to a full length chainguard and dropped 'The Look' name. As for value, I picked this one up a couple of years ago at a bike swap for $40. I sold it on ebay later that year for $150.
