    "Super Rare" bike boom 10 speed.

    Wasn't there "It came from eBay/Craigslist" post at some point?

    This little gem just screams 70s kitsch. Er, I mean, this is an ultra-rare bike that would make "a awesome one-of-a-kind fixie."

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-TEASE-Ro...0#ht_500wt_951

    This is EXACTLY the type of bike I would buy...for about $150 less than the seller is asking.

    I think the Continental tire shown in the pictures is worth more than the bike.

    My favorite part...he has to specify no international shipping...because otherwise the Chinese, Australians and Japanese would be crawling over each other for it.

    If I saw it at a garage sale I might go $20 just because I think the decal and font are awesome.

    The title of this thread is somewhat of a tease.

    Wow. That's the nicest one of those I've ever seen.

    Is that a "Speed Pit" brake?

    In it's own perverse way, this bike is interesting - although not to the point that I'd pay over $25.00 for it. What you're looking at is probably one of the earliest Japanese 'commodity' manufacturers who ended up taking over the industry by the 1980's. Early Shimano, an SR cottered crank which I've never seen before (my knowledge of SR begins with the Maxi 3-pin cotterless that started appearing in Erie in time for the 1974 riding season), I believe those are Shimano Tourney centerpulls, and the frame quality is nowhere near a Fuji of the period, but still a lot better than the C. Itoh's that we were denigrating back during the Bike Boom. The Shimano Eagle was the ubiquitous cheap derailleur if you were talking Japanese. Call it a Simplex Prestige that could survive a right side drop.

    Hey, there's some interesting history in all bikes. What you're looking at is the forerunner of the Univegas, Centurions, Vistas, etc. of the 80's. And the earliest forerunner of what the bicycle industry is nowadays. Probably built for a department store or catalog store chain in the late Bike Boom. None of those ever appeared in the Erie area, although we used to get flyers from jobbers at the bike shop offering us Japanese bikes of the same spec, bare, and ready to put the shops own brand name on the head and down tube. Probably got about one of those flyers a week in the mail, so everybody and his brother was trying to come up with bikes during the Boom.

    I don't know about you guys, but I think some hipster would dig that the most. It really would make a sweet fixie/single speed campus beater.

    I can just see some girl riding that bike through campus thinking she's the shiz. All the hipster guys are like, "What a tease!"

    I've seen that crank. It's cottered, and the arms are aluminum! Not a great idea, as you can imagine.

    That crank is a early SR Silver Series cottered, say what you like but I would love to have one, I have and like the later square tapered Silver Series models that use the 3 degree square tapered spindles ( very hard to find now) as compared to the 2 degree spindles that fit everything else. They are great when building a gas pipe frame and you want to save some weight as these are very lite. They made a few different designs and logos through the years and I have a few, even Sugino copied them some being labeled for Fuji.

    Is it me, or is the interface between the auxiliary (i.e. turkey) lever and brake lever body far more elegant than the later Dia-Compe bolt on version?
