Sideral road bikes?

Hey all- Iím looking at a frame to build up and canít find much on the web. Itís branded ďSideralĒ. Nice looking lugs, heck even the rear brake mount is ornate! Right now itís got a early Dura Ace crank may be original to the bike. To me it looks to be mid to late 80s era but Iím no expert.


Anyone know something about these bikes? Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the link- I'd seen that earlier today and thought the info was cool but the frame is different. More old school Italian. I'd post some photos but I'm a newbie and can't yet.

You can add photos to a "Gallery" you make on your user profile page, after which somebody here with full access could copy/paste the photos in a thread. Common practice while newbie works to reach the 10-post threshold.

That aluminum example from juvela is quite unique: I expected another re-branded ALAN (or possibly a rebranded Vitus 979) but never seen one like that before.

Thanks for the info! I went ahead and created a album with some of the photos from the ad if someone would be nice enough to copy them to this thread! Oh- If this is a issue for the pages' moderators please let me know- thanks!

I like those lugs. I wonder what @juvela can tell us about them.

I don't recognize the lugs, but they appear to be investment-cast and so are "modern", maybe a bit more recent products than the frame would otherwise indicate. Could be Asian-made lugs, perhaps, but don't look like any of the Long-Shen models I have seen.
No fork?
What's the spacing of the rear (OLN width: 126, 130?) and what threading is the BB shell?

EDIT: looked a bit more at modern lugs and these may be "Allotec" and have been sold by Framebuilder Supply in Oregon (probably by others, too) but the 1" size lugs for steel tubes currently are sold out. Here's a pic snagged from that website:


Allotec headlugs, there's also a matching seatlug
