AGE / VALUE:   Sekine Medialle posted by: Harry on 5/28/2007 at 8:23:14 PM
SEKINE, Just bought a Sekine Medialle 5sp. I know these were Canadian made (Manitoba) from 1973 through the early eighties. They were known for their excellent quality. The plant was set up in Canada to circumnavigate a tarriff placed on imported bikes at the time. I'd like to ID the actual year and model. The bike is 100% complete and original, 'cept the tires and seat. The brake pads and cables even are original Shimano (white jecket). It has Shimano Lark SPO derailer. Alloy wide flange hubs, steel rims. Chrome tipped fork. Shimano Tourney Alloy Center Pull brakes. ANy ideas?, Why no reference to Sekine on the site?
Thanks in advance



It has,

I found a bicycle in the garbage ... the brand is "Payan" but the frame says "Liberia" 102 so i presume Payan in Marseille had the frame built by Liberia back in the 70s. I've put the bike back together and I'm researching links to find out when it was made. The components are mostly "Simplex" for the derailleur and Mafac for the brakes. I can't date it exactly but I would say mid to late 70's. I
t still rides great and I think I will use it froml time to time for rides in town. I hope this helps and plesae send me any info you think I might need to know.

I recently picked up a frame that sounds much like the bike described by af on 7/4/07 and am in the process of converting it to a single speed city bike. If anyone cares to share some photos I would be interested to see a complete 70's vintage bike.

Hi Everyone

Wondering if anyone knows about Velo Sport Inc. bikes from Canada.

The only information i have is that apparently they have a lifetime warranty on the frames but Velo Sport Inc. was purchased by Procycle www.procycle.com in 1974 and stopped marketing/selling Velo Sport and Peugeot bikes in 2001.

Anyway I can't seem to get much more information than this so if anyone has any more that would really be helpful.

I love this bike but it really is too big for me...I would like to sell/trade it for a 20 inch frame but I need to know what it is worth first.

Thanks everyone.

Model: Aero
Size: 25 inch (63cm)
All Shimano components
Weinmann quick release 27 x 1/4" aluminum rims
Sugino crank
Sakae aluminum handlebars

Any frame stickers? Details on the components?

They made some nice high end models but most were just good mid-range solid sport tourers. The 27 " wheels suggst this is one of those. Not likely worth a great deal so trade it for your size if you can. Craigslist?

I have an early 1960's era man's and woman's bicycles. They both have "Royal Traveler" in white lettering on the bike. I am trying to find information on the manufacturer, approximate value, etc. Both bikes are in excellent, almost-new condition. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

I have a Royal Scot; these 3 speeds were very popular back then; and perhaps Royal Traveller is just trying to create that English bike image.

Is it a 3 speed? Does it have handlebars that rise? Or that are drop and a shape kind of like the horns of a ram?

What color is it?

Is it a lugged frame? (Lugs join the tube, as in this very ornate example; http://frugal-bicycling.com/files/bikes_mainrivendell.jpg )

Just check to see if there is some sort of serial number on the bottom.

Are there other decals, like maybe one that says something like "genuine English lightweight steel"?
