I just redid this bike....It was headed for the scrapyard when I snagged it.
I haven't seen many like it..on the web. and years quoted vary from 1975 to 1985
No Spalding serial no. lookup....
.
It's a fantastic older bike....took every thing down, re greased, cleaned, , chrome shined up like new.
Wheels , unbelievably were still still straight and true, never had that happen on an old bike before .
Thought you would like a peek and if anyone has a date for this bike, or a story, perhaps you had one.... don't hesitate to let me know
cheers all

I just picked up the mens version of that bike,same color too. Mine has some slight diffrences,I believe they are early 1980s. I will take a closer look tomorrow,maybe I can narrow it down by dating the components. It is the second Spalding Blade I have owned,only two I have ever come across.

My mother actually picked up one, and a Mt. Furry Roadmaster at a garage sale some years ago for next to nothing. She moved in with me a little over a year ago, and her stuff has been packed in my garage. Well, a few months ago I was cleaning out the garage and was almost about to trash the 2 bikes, but then decided to start working on them. My younger son took a liking to the Fury, but I fell in love with the Spalding. Have been cleaning her up and find myself hardly riding my mountain bike. Swapped out the tires, and am planning on switching to dropdown bars. Love this bike.

This is the Mt.Fury. so far on this, I've replaced both tubes, brake pads and the right shifter. It's strange, when I was my son's age, I was all about BMX bikes. He has a decent one, but he prefers this. Oh well, I guess. At least my daughter likes his bike. Maybe I'll repaint it instead of buying her a new one.
