You'll have to post several detailed pics and all relevant info ...serial numbers, components with date numbers, dropout, etc. Otherwise it's impossible to identify the maker and even with this info the chances may be slim at best.

Serial # 's are located on the bottom of the frame and read M5C15017. Also on the rear of the frame where the wheel goes on it says Shimano EF. Please anyone tell me if they ever seen this bike and know anything about it. Thanks, Matt

The long serial number suggests it was made by a sizable operation but beyond that...? No decals or labeling left on it?

MISC:   Free Spirit Bike posted by: Don on 2/22/2008 at 6:13:36 PM
I have a free spirit bike thats called lifestyle, it has a microalloy frame, it was sold thou sears in the 90's. it has the rear frame crimped to the mounting for the rear wheel, the bike has never been riden, still has the nebs on the tires. it is a Six speed bike, thats riden upright.
My Question is should the crimped area be welded down the crimped area, or just ride the bike, if ok live alone, if the area shows loseness then weld or rivit?

Sears Free Spirit bikes are usually pretty low quality. If you have doubts about the safety of the frame, take it to a bike shop or someone else familiar with bikes. Your description is not clear.

lots of mass-produced bikes have stamped dropouts that have the stays crimped to them. It's probably got spot-welds to hold it together. The above advice is good- are you worried about it? If so, have it looked at.

I decided to remove this bike from auction for the simple reason that I am not ready to part with it yet. The man that gave me the bike passed away recently and I just can not part with it. As for it not being a Wastyn, Wastyn Cycles believes that it was built by Emil Wastyn. Scott Wastyn derived this from the same pictures used in the listing. So I will go with their assesment as to what it is. Sorry for tease. I in know way wanted to rile anyone.

AGE / VALUE:   Fixed Gear Conversions posted by: Gralyn on 2/20/2008 at 9:49:05 AM
I was making a fixed gear conversion - but ran into a little difficulty: I was using an older rear wheel with a free-hub hub....and of course, I have to re-space the axle to get the track cog more to the right for proper chain alignment. After doing that - I then want to re-dish the wheel - because it won't be centered inside the seat and chain stays. OK, so I re-dish the wheel......I have it centered on the hub body....and it's centered inside the seat and chain stays. OK, great! NOT! Now I have the spokes sticking up through the nipples inside the rim. They are sticking through too far - and they would surely puncture the tube through the rim tape. I need shorter spokes on that side. It seems I have re-dished some wheels - and have not run into that problem. Is this a common problem? Does every wheel you re-dish run into this situation?

           RE:AGE / VALUE: Fixed Gear Conversions posted by Warren on 2/21/2008 at 5:02:23 PM
If I'm not mistaken, you don't need it centered on the hub body at all, just the frame. The drive side spokes may indeed need to be shorter depending on the length of the originals and the section of the rim. Multi-speed rear wheels are built with differing lengths of spokes on the two sides to allow for dish.
by: 24.222.223.49

           RE:RE:AGE / VALUE: Fixed Gear Conversions posted by Warren on 2/21/2008 at 7:44:32 PM
Let me revise that...it's not actually the frame but the rims which must be centered between the outside contact points of the axles' cone/washer/locknuts. This requires a dishing tool. If you're going to build and true wheels you should invest in one. When done correctly the wheel will be centered in the frame IF the frame is straight and true. If it doesn't line up then your frame is misaligned. The crucial first step for a fixed wheel is spacing the hub on the axle so that your chainline is near spot on. Then you can build the wheel correctly.

           RE:RE:RE:AGE / VALUE: Fixed Gear Conversions posted by Gralyn on 2/22/2008 at 9:02:35 AM
Yes, that's it.....I can get the cog over to the right for proper chain alignment.....but then the rim is too far to one side - so to get the rim centered - I have to change the dish.....this works fine - except that the spokes are too long - and won't accomodate re-dishing. I would either have to get shorter spokes for the one side - or use a different wheel, etc.

AGE / VALUE:   Shimano 333 hubs posted by: Gralyn on 2/18/2008 at 11:10:14 AM
I tried to find some information on Shimano 333 hubs. However, every reference I could find has to do with 3-speed internally geared hubs (like the Sturmey Archer). But, these are old 10-speed free-hub hubs.

One of my projects from a few years back was a Campania (Japanese....where the name brand looks like "Campagnolo"). It had horizontal dropouts, no der. hanger, no braze-ons....so I was going to convert it to fixed-gear. I salvaged what I could of it - as my storage for these old bikes has been very crappy. Anyway, I completed the fixie conversion.

I did notice the hubs were Shimano 333. Those were the first ones I had seen. The rims are alloy, the hubs are alloy, with quick release. Anyone ever seen these hubs?

I have a pair of these. They're Campy knock-offs that don't look quite so good. I wonder if Shimano used 333 as a trademark for a while; I think I've seen it on a bunch of different parts. I think the hubs date from before Shimano was pushing whole component groups.
by: 216.15.114.27

           RE:AGE / VALUE: Shimano 333 hubs posted by Joe on 2/20/2008 at 10:47:43 PM
I've seen '333' on many Shimano items. They used that on 3 speed hubs, steel and alloy road hubs and I've even seen it on shifters and I seem to remember it on a derailleur way back when. (I'd have to do some digging in the used derailleur barrel out back).
I had or may still have a set of alloy Shimano '333' high flange quick release hubs, I've also seen bikes with those which used only a front QR and a nutted hub in the rear, as well as two nutted '333' hubs with those large wing nuts.
The '333' designation was early, pre-1975.
I got the impression that they used that as a level designation just like the newer '600' or '105' components. Although '333' sort of meant low end, or close to it.
They were decent quality for the money, but nothing to right home about. I would guess that the hubs were well under $10 new as replacements They don't look any different than the later high flange hubs to me. I've also seen steel '333' hubs too, they were common on a lot of bikes back then.
I believe Shimano started in the US around 1965-66, so they could have been around for a while as well.

Thanks for the information. I didn't suspect my Shimano 333 hubs were anything valuable, or high-end - considering the rest of the bike and its components. But, it was a model I had never seen before. This old bike stuff is really interesting.

Another interesting component I have: An old, kind of low-end looking AMF 10-speed - but it has like a first generation Dura-Ace brakes


I thought I was bad.....your "barrel" of used deraillers....I have a couple big boxes of used ders....and I was thinking about going through them and separating them out by quality and condition......

           RE:RE:RE:AGE / VALUE: Shimano 333 hubs posted by Joe on 2/21/2008 at 1:03:06 PM
Are those Centerpull or sidepull? Tourney Branded, 3.3.3. or no brand at all?
I have a pair of old Center pull Dura-Ace calipers somewhere around here, as well as a set of early side pulls. I don't see any difference in those early components vs. the later versions with various names. I have an old Columbia that has a pair of early Shimano Tourney side pull calipers from the very early 70's. They are identical to the Dura-Ace versions that I saw, even down to their weight. Sometimes the difference in components was no more than lighter hardware, but in this case it's just the name.

I have big barrels of a lot of parts, it started with cardboard boxes, then milk crates, then plastic barrels. The hubs are still in milk crates but only due to weight. Its the result of doing this as a hobby for many years and saving everything. I've also bought out several old bike shops over the years.

           RE:RE:RE:RE:AGE / VALUE: Shimano 333 hubs posted by Gralyn on 2/21/2008 at 5:00:06 PM
The old first generation Dura-Ace brake calipers are center pull.....

I started collecting stuff like maybe about 7 years ago. I got all of it a bike-at-a-time...however, for the past 2-3 years, there haven't been any old bikes to find. I haven't bought out any old shops....or come upon someone else's old collections. ....so, for right now, what I have is what I have......maybe a couple hundred deraillers at most.....and the same goes for most other components. No, probably not but about half that.

It might help if you told us the derailleurs (like motors, the things that change cogs on the bike), there will be a front and back one. That might go a long way towards ascertaining the date of this BRC. They will have names like Shimano, Suntour or Campagnolo among other possibilities.

What colors is the bike? What is the handlebar tape like? Are the handlebars drop handlebars (sort of like Rams horns)?

It could be a Japanese bicycle to some specially made one.

Interesting. When did the suicide levers first appear? Late 60s? This would appear to be a fairly early attempt to get Japanese bikes into the booming American market. I'd guess it's probably late 60s or very early 70s. I like the misspelling of "randonneur." Kind of like the Suntour Spirt derailer; I always thought they intended "Spirit."

           RE:RE:AGE / VALUE: Help Identify this Racer posted by Rob on 2/18/2008 at 10:09:45 PM
I think the components are reasonably good, now I think it could be say, mid/late seventies because the components seem rather specialized, even early '80s as far as I'm concerned and that is good because it might be more lightweight. Nice handlebars, one last thing would be to ponder if the tires are magnetic, they would attract a magnet. The only drawback I notice is the old checkered saddle, those were popular but I don't think it should reflect on the bike itself. I had a Star Japanese bike which was absolutely excellent but a bike repair man said it had one dent on the downtube which might not make it the safest bike around. Cotton handlebar wrapping too. This all looks respectable to me. Not being an expert, I think the Shimano Tourney centerpull brakes too adds up to more to say this is a good bicycle as well as your saying the control levers, finger shifters are at the bar ends, that is another good component, above the ordinary.

And what looks like an interesting airpump; though that is not that clear and a cool headbadge on the front tube.

It appears Japanese (Taiwanese? from the search?) and better than some Bridgestone Japanese bikes I've seen, it makes me think of a Nishiki type of ride.

Lastly, it doesn't hurt to see if a serial number is on the bike usually under the bottom bracket.

You may have tried the search too from the main page:

Here is one reference clearly to this brand of bicycle, even if this bit is not flattering it's not the last word:

Yes, that was it! And yes, it looked like one from Taiwan. I'm glad I passed on it. It didn't really have anything I needed - and I didn't need the bike. I could have re-built it, put new tires on it, cleaned and polished everything...and maybe sold it for at least a $15 loss - not counting the time I put into it. I'm trying to become more knowledgeable - so that I don't pass up something that may have value - and pass on the one's that don't "

I can tell you this much: the bike I have is a roadbike from around 1975, and it was made in Japan. There is also a decal that says "pro" which I guess is the model. I think it cost around $300 new in the '70s, but I could be mistaken.

From the picture it looks like it would probably accept 700c wheels. Why do you want to do that? I, personally, think it would be nuts to throw money at that bike and ride it 600 miles. I would find one (used probably) that really fit me and that performed very well (easy rolling, comfortable, stable, etc)
I just don't think the low-end bike pictured is going to be anything but torture over such a distance.

Has anyone heard of a frame builder "McKinley"? The frame is steel lugged, components date 1982, no serial# on BB, has the Shimano 600 signature component group "Arabesque" the ones with the flowery ornate engravings on down tube shifters and ders. I've included link to some basic pics., my camera won't get the details well. The Champion tubing stickers are green and are on seat tube and side of forks.

The weight suggests the tubes are Champion #1, although I don't recognize that decal. The early 80s Champion #2 decals are different than that example. Makes it a nice bike and the group is nice. Do you have the brakes to match? I think I've got a set but they were never great stoppers.

I am wondering about the name McKinley being Scottish, which it is. Is there a way to find information on something so obscure? I have been doing several different searches including "Bikepedia" and not coming up with anything. Most searches give the Ross Mt. McKinley mtn bike. As for the brakes, that was the only thing missing from the component group. I have "retrofitted" some Alhonga single pivot caliper brakes and as you mentioned this gives the bike superior braking to original. Had to maching the nutserts down with a dremel tool but it worked. : )

The plain paint job and good workmanship suggest to me that it's from a small shop. Is there a serial number on it? No number suggests a very small shop. But it might indicate something about how big the builder's production was.

There is no serial no. anywhere on the frame. I think you're right about the very small shop, like a custom build or something, maybe?

I have a set of 600 calipers if you want to complete the package, although it's true you'd notice some difference (not as much as you may think) in braking. Note to Warren - the cranks are shimano 600 'arabesque'.

hey guys, i was doing some research on mckinley made bikes when i ran across this thread. i happen to own a mckinley that i still train on road with. mine came with a complete set of old school dura ace groupo. i still ride it the way it came except for the brake levers, pedals and the high flange tubular wheel set. (all of which i still have stored away). great riding bike. i also have a vintage eddy merckx with super record. not sure how to post pics but if you email me at chosnbyHim@gmail.com ill forward you a whole album of pics that i have of it. looking forward to hearing from you. martin

Hi there, I just recently bought a McKinley bike from sportchek. I tried looking up the name but I couldn't find it.. nothing came up except for this thread and some sites about the McKinley Mountain Bike Races. Here is the link: http://www.sportchek.ca/sportchek/do/style?menuId=231&styleId=47001

I believe the bike is made in China, I'm not sure but is McKinley even a good brand? I feel like I made the wrong purchase,... let me konw. Email me!

Thankss

Not much to add, but I also have a McKinley, purchased right around 2000 in Germany, from a German shop. It was made in Yugoslavia.

MISC:   Wastyn Special posted by: Tim on 2/11/2008 at 3:22:51 PM
Here are pictures of the Wastyn Special that I recently found. I will be putting this up for auction at the end of this month or early March. I recently had these pictures looked at by Scott Wastyn of Wastyn Cycles and he confirmed for me that this was a bike that his Grandfather Emil Wastyn built.
