My 71 year old dad came over last weekend to give me a hand in the middle of my cottered crank nightmare, and he was as determined as I was to get that crank off. Over the last month or so I have been talking to him about old bikes and told him to keep his eye out, and I think he is as excited about C&V bikes now as I am! Like us all I think he is reliving a bit of his youth with all the bike work and talk that we have been doing together. He called yesterday telling me about some yard sale ads in the paper that said they had bikes in their sale, and then tonight he called and said he ran into a neighbor and picked up a Sekai bike.
I did a little searching and found out they are mid-range Japanese bikes, but depending on the model could actully be pretty nice. I told him to get me a model number and the serial number and I would do some more digging.
Anybody ever had a Sekai? What is the general opinion about them?
