Your bike is SO pristine! WOW! It looks barely ridden.

Can you share any back story about how you came to own it?

Your bike is in awesome shape, congrats!
The Araya people shut down the links to the old catalog scans, and not much exists.

Certainly. It was for sale on Ebay about 4 years ago. The original owner provided me with the Araya owners manual and also told me that this bike was deliberately ordered without the Araya down tube decals.

Very cool! I saw something similar in person at an old bike shop in Iowa many years ago. That one had very ovalized tubing. And I believe it was a metallic gold color.
