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.
