    Vintage Deeley "Deelite" Cruiser Info Needed

    Hi all
    I picked up a cruiser bike I thought looked interesting at a yard sale today, and I was wondering if anyone knows anything about bikes sold by Fred Deeley. It seems to be a 'Deelite' brand, model name is Riviera, but was made in japan. Was he an importer? It's very much a 70s bike, but I'm trying to get a better date of production, and figure out who the hell made this thing...
    Cheers.

    Yes, Fred Deeley was an importer based in Vancouver back in the 70's and 80's I believe. Virtually all the old Apollos (and I'm sure some other Japanese brands) came from his shop.
