1978 Original Free Spirit (Sears) Owner's Manual

ellis richman /

Hello Family of Free Spirit Mopeds! I just bought and received a nice original 1978 Sears Free Spirit Owner's Manual from a gentleman in the United Kingdom. It's basic in comparison to the 110 page original Free Spirit Repair Manual content, but it's cool to have in my baby-collection of memorabilia as a newbie to moped ownership.

If anyone would like a copy of this manual, I'm going to Staples today to make a PDF scan. I should have a copy in this thread later today barring life-interruptions (like my trying to decide if I should drill out the restrictor in the carb intake rather than keeping it stock, and removing those plastic baffles in the air intake in my attempt to go 5mp faster)

Best regards, Ellis

So excellent - well done and welcome to the world of mopeds (its NOT an addiction - lol)

Not trying to scare you off, just passing along some cautious advice.

Do a lot of research before doing any mods. Everything in interactive on the motor, so derestricting the intake would lead to rejetting the carb, even derestricting the exhause would lead to consideration of the restriction in the intake, that would lead to the carb jetting (that sort of thing). Some half researched mods could just give you worst performance, other could give you a seized engine.

Once you get into it you will enjoy tinkering and getting a few more mph or perhaps be inspired to kit and really go wild :)

I have the same moped. I'll take a manual!!!!

if you can't upjet, then don't remove the restrictions. it comes with a 52 jet. you'll be way to lean without upjeting. I run a 64 jet on pipe with the techno pipe.

should check which version you have too. if you have the round intake - i'd leave it

All three speed versions have the same engine, same primary drive 21 x 106T, same 14mm carburetor, same piston, cylinder, and head gasket.

30mph 2.0hp: no intake restrictor, no air box restrictors, Bing #68 jet, 15 x 45T sprockets, same exhaust

25mph 1.5hp: 8.5mm intake restrictor, air box restrictors, Bing #52 jet, 13 x 45T sprockets, same exhaust

20mph 1.0hp: 6.7mm intake restrictor, air box restrictors, Bing #52 jet, 13 x 45T sprockets, restricted header

You could upload it to Google drive, that'd probably be the easiest way
