    Bike ID




    This is on Craiglsist right now in my area.

    This bike appears to be all chrome. Also, from that tiny picture, I think the derailleur is a Suntour Cyclone, which would indicate a quality bike.

    Any ideas?

    Was just sent these full-resolution pictures. I was right about the Suntour Cyclone.

    Owner says the "bike is Japanese, but not Fuji," and is unsure of what kind it is "because all the labels have been removed."

    I'm getting excited thinking I've found something nice! Anyone know what it is?

    Someone else might correct my thought about your bike being all chrome. I believe old quality road bikes were chromed before being painted. My bike's frame is chromed and painted, with the rear stays and dropouts left unpainted. The fork is all chromed. If your bike fits this, the stickers are gone maybe because the frame has been stripped down to the chrome.
