AGE / VALUE:   Vintage Araya bike (not the rims) posted by: Eric on 10/9/2005 at 11:56:14 PM
I own an old Araya bike. It weighs about 25 lbs. All the parts are Shimano 600. And both wheels are aluminum Araya rims. You can tell it was built for racing as there is no room to put on fenders. My question: I can't seem to find any info anywhere about this bike -- like how old is it(?), etc(?). Any ideas?

Sounds like very early 80's, probably built with a very
high quality tange BMX tube set of small diameter main
tubes. It was common for high end Japanese bikes of the time
to raid the ten-speed parts pile.

AGE / VALUE:   ID needed for a 24"? bike..... posted by: Don on 10/1/2005 at 9:40:56 AM
I came across a 24" bike I think? The reason I think it is a 24 is because it has 24 x 1.175 on the side of the tires and they are an ugly red color. It has a aluminum frame but the tube in the front of the bike were the forks
go,down to were the pedals go,it's rather large and appears
to be oval.There wre stickers on it but the remaining part
of the only sticker left has the letters NOM. The rest of the parts are I guess you would call it anodized in the colors red and gold.This is an odd looking bike.I was going to take all the aluminum pieces off a scrap them,but my neighbor seen the bike and took a real keen interest in it all of a sudden.So I was wondering what is it,and does it have any value? If I don't find out soon it will be going on the trip to recycling center with the rest of my beer cans. I do not like my neighbor,and he's acting really wierd
towards me now since he seen it. And it's making me nervous.
The sooner it's gone the better.If anyone knows anything please let me know.ThankYou.

Your bike sounds like a Nomura if it round frame tubes,
it's super rare. He was a 80's builder that built aluminium
copies of JMC frames.

AGE / VALUE:   A General Question or 2 posted by: J. Bissell on 10/1/2005 at 2:52:29 AM
Admittingly, I have picked up strange bikes before, (I need to stop doing this?) but this one has me going, it's not so much the lack of information available on the internet (well, maybe just a litle) but mostly it's the great condition of the bike. I now own a early-early 90's General Pro, Fred Blood signature BMX bike. It is a chrome and black framed 19.5 top tube with redish decals, it's equiped with an ACS rotor and freewheel, Araya rims with Joy Tech 48 spoke high flange hubs, a full 4130 CroMo frame and CroMo 180mm one piece cranks (nondescript black plas pedals) Anlun 4 bolt black stem and White 44t chainwheel, Dia Compe Tech 4 handles w/ DiaCompe Nippon front brakes (w/wienman adj) and DC AD 990's mounted under the chainstays. All the brake pads and the front tire appear original and everything is in great shape! So there is the market value question, exact age question and the more difficult "Shouldn't my parents have warned me about picking up strange bicycles" question. All comments will be read enthusiastically!

I have a patterson frame top tube is 18.5"(expert size frame). This bike was raced in the late 70's early 80's by my brother. IT was one of the first pattersons in our area. I beleive it is nickel plated, when it had stikers on it they were clear with orange and blue lettering. I have benn searching for new stickers, but no luck yet.
