    Sony made bikes? Sony Walkman Solarspeed

    Anyone ever ride one of these? http://denver.craigslist.org/bik/1589234342.html
    Know the quality or original OEM (I'm assuming it's not mfg. by Sony)?

    Looks really low end, cottered crankset, nutted axles, and at one time had stem shifters. Usually consumer products companies put their names on low end junk basically.

    I've seen bikes from Bang & Olufsen, Kenwood, and Pioneer and ALL were low end BSO's. (Bike Shaped Object). Rand seemed to make many of these and often they were used as salesperson contest prizes.

    Here is a Rand made B&O mountain bike.

    F.O.B.D.

    A friend gave me a bike that was used as a sales reward. It is a Randor. A real gas pipe special. The only redeeming factor is this thing is 15 or so yo and never ridden. Looks NOS. Actually it is a POS.

    Best regards,

    Mike
