Sony made bikes? Sony Walkman Solarspeed
Anyone ever ride one of these?
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.

I bet Sony Walkmans are collectibles now. Takes me back...boy am I getting old.
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.
