When it rains it pours, or at least gives you enough for a drink. My day job hours were cut so I'm stepping into a more active bike tuner/overhauler.
I wound up with two Sekai road bikes this week and thought I'd post some details and pics of them since there isn't a lot of info about this bike brand on the site here, thought this might help others down the road. Pics will come later, posting this from the phone which isn't great for editing or for posting pics.
The first bike is a 12 speed, I forget what it has for components, 27" wheels. Looks like someone converted it over to sweptback cruiser handlebars because the brake levers have the telltail turkeywing extension of the pivot bolt. Shifter arms are up on the stem. It also has a wire basketset on back which will come off and go onto my wife's bike. I think the model of this Sekai is either a 120 or a 210. I will get a fishscale weight of it once I get the basket off.
The second Sekai is a Sprint model, 27" wheels, 10 speed, SunTour group, I think it has DiaCompe brakes, drop bars with no turkeywings for the brake levers. The front derailer said "Sprit" as near as I could make out so far, not Spirit and not Sprint, just Sprit (?). Steel rims, bolt-on rear, quick release on front, stamped dropouts. Tubing has a sticker that says High Tensile and also Tange. Doesn't feel too heavy either. It has a Yellow Jersey bike shop sticker on the seat tube. Paint has seen better days with a fair amount of chipping and flaking but no significant rust to speak of.
That's all I can think of for now, I'll post more when I get time (plus my thumbs are getting tired typing on this mini keypad).
Oh, and I'd better add, this isn't intended to be a sneaky for sale post, I'm honestly just sharing info on the brand since there doesn't seem to be much about Sekai on the site here. Feel free to add your own Sekai info if you have any.
