SR Brand Bicycles - Pro, Semi-Pro, Maxima
 
I recently purchased an SR Maxima, which came with Suntour Superbe components. I'm guessing it was from about 1983 - 85, from the crankset and brake calipers. Does anyone know the lineup of SR bikes? I know there's the Pro, Semi-Pro, and Maxima, but can't find much on other ones. Thank you!

There was a Triathlon model.

There's a few threads on Bf if you search for them. Here's a Semi Pro in the same color combo as the Triathlon posted.

I was actually trying out different wheelsets to see what they looked like. I do that with all my bikes. That way I can post a pic for someone that has a similar paint scheme. They can see what they like. Some more:

Two of the color combos SRs came in are dark blue/silver head tube and black/silver head tube. I have Centurions with those colors and the different wheelsets photos in case someone wants to see them.

The Maxima was the top of the line model in the mid-1980s. Below it, circa 1984, was the Pro-Am, Semi-Pro (both racing and touring versions), Alpine Sport, Campus Sport and College Sport. There was also an Explorer ATB, a Commuter model with 26" wheels and a couple of BMX models in their Dirt-Master series. The Triathlon model was slightly later.

The serial number may allow us to determine the exact year of your Maxima. Photos may help and would be appreciated.
