Panasonic Cycle Deluxe?

I recently picked up an old Panasonic, and can not find out anything about it. The side reads Panasonic Cycle Deluxe with the Cycle Deluxe part in sort of a cursive writing. Does anyone know anything about this bike? I'm guessing somewhere between 77-80?

Are you sure it is Cycle Deluxe and not Sport Deluxe? Sport Deluxes are very common but I have never seen a Cycle Deluxe. Sport's are generally the lower end of Panasonic's line up.

Posting pictures will help if it is a Cycles Deluxe or a list of the components.

Its just the frame, no other components. I did a fixie conversion and was just curious about the frame because I've never seen one like it. Here are the pictures

Hi, Just a note for the books.... I have a Panasonic Sport Deluxe from the late '70's that is tagged Chro-mo. I bought it used long ago and immediately weighed it on digital scales at 19.7 lbs. I was shocked, so i ran it into my company's metallurgical lab and indeed its weight is 19.7 lbs. with pedals, seat, etc. Maybe some models were assembled with other model frames to finish an order???? Might be worth checking out.....

Can you post some clear pics of your bike? What is the serial number of your bike?

This is a mid 70's entry level model 73-76 Panasonic didn't start making mas produced export models till 72/73 and they dropped the script logo and chrome fork crowns on most models in the mid 70's. As presented as simple FG/SS with chopped bars, original carter pinned crank and basic wheel set and tires worth about $125 if everything works good. As note the bike is too small for the rider based on the current setup, the seat and bars are raised about 2 inches above the safe point and should be lowered for safety, the line on the stem in the middle of the stem in the photo is the safe line.
