1985? super sport

i have a 85 ? super sport all black says made in japan and butt connected joints decal

i bot it new in around 85 /86 where is the id number?

also i just added new plastic shoes clips that are longer, now my toes hit the front wheel when i turn
just a little

the orig. clips were to short, maybe i have too small a frame for my 11.5 shoe size

i forgot the frame size, besides a measurement is the size stamped on it

i also has a 1971 ss but to me was just a step aboue the varsaity level

You should always get a frame to fit your shoe size.

There are so many ways to have fun with this thread but I gave up being a smart ***** for Lent.

All black sounds like an '83:

The '84 was grey or pearl white, the '85 was pearl white and the '86 was red with black rear stays.

The serial number should be on the bottom of the bottom bracket shell, the left rear dropout or on the bottom of the headtube in the lug. There should also be a light, four-digit stamping in the headbadge. The first three digits are the ordinal day of the year, the last digit is the last digit of the year. For example '0123' would be the 12th day of 1983.

A '71 SS was a pretty big step over a Varsity. The crank was the literal anchor dragging it down ...

I believe the 80's lugged super sports were made by Panasonic. The '82 touring model I have is a very sweet riding frame.
