Royal Knight Cycles

Hello!
Recently I've found a few 'Royal Knight' bikes up for sale in my area, and not knowing anything about this name, I was wondering if anyone could give me any information about the manufacturer.

Thanks in advance.

All the ones I've seen were 1970's boom era and entry level, though there there may have been some better models. I'm pretty sure they were Japanese (or possibly Taiwanese) in origin, as the company associated with the brand was Ataka and the catalogs featured Oriental models.

I've recently aquired a royal knight as well. Mine has made in canada on the frame but the wheels do say made in taiwan. I'm looking to fix it up where as its in pretty rough shape at the moment. Great info on the year! I was wondering how old it was. Thx!
