Not sure what year or really much else about it.
Some google-fu tells me it's probably mid to late 70's. It is most likely aluminum and the "lugs" should be aluminum cast around the tubes themselves while the they were in a jig or something like that.
Not sure about it's value or any history of the bike. It's gonna need a complete overhaul. Everything cleaned and repacked. Some parts are gonna need a rust bath. New cables, housing, etc. The tubes still hold air but i will most likely just replace them. The tires have some kind of moss growing on the sidewalls so they will need to be replaced. Wheels appear tru which is one plus.
All the components appear to be the original parts
Suntour stem shifters
Suntour VGT luxe (rear)
Suntour Compe-V (front)
SR Cranks w/ BS crests on the crank arms (Bridgestone?)
Dia Compe center-pulls and levers
Sakae Champion Bars
Some Chrome top tube cable clips
Araya Alloy 27 x 1 1/4 rims
Hubs are nasty and i can't tell what they are.
Soo what's it worth? I only paid $30.00
Thanks for your time!
