I found a bike for sale yesterday that was of high quality, all Shimano 600 group but the frame was a Walton. Never heard of this and I suspect that it must be a custom frame builder. Anyone know.

| Does anyone have any info on vintage Avon bicycles, made in India. Worth anything?|
| I have a blue Sears bike with the markings 'Sakal Custom' and 'Road Champion' engraved on the handlebars. The bike is in near-mint condition and I'm trying to track down any info about the bike including, accurate model name and value. Thanks!|
| those Sakai handlebars appear on lots of different brands of bikes. You can probably date your bike from its components, including the hubs, derailleurs and brakes- but if it doesn't have a model name on it, you'll have to find a catalog AFTER you date it and look for comparables. However, don't expect this machine to have any significant value unless you find, for example, 'Campagnolo' or 'Reynolds 531' on it.|
| I've got a photo of this bike - if anyone can identify the model. Thanks! |
