Thanks for this. Ended up winning it for just under $43 all in.

56cm Dura-Ace Chrome Sutton Professional

56cm Dura-Ace Chrome Sutton Professional - $450

Absolutely incredible condition. 56cm seat tube center-to-center. Guarantee you will not find a vintage road bike in this condition. One owner bike. Barely touched, let alone ridden. Excellent blue paint. Fully chromed frame underneath the paint. Exposed chrome stays, forks, lugs, and seatstay caps. This was built in the early 1970's by Nishiki, for the American market.

100% original. 1st Generation Dura-Ace throughout, including low flange front and rear hubs, Shimano Crane GS (long drilled out cage, ~1971, this was the original Dura Ace component) rear derailleur, D-A brake levers, sidepull brake calipers, 170mm double crankset (with built in chainguard). The front derailleur is Shimano Titlist. The shifters are Shimano Fingertip stem shifters. I can include a set of Shimano or Suntour bar-end shifters.

Pictures dont do this bike justice. You have to see her to appreciate her.

Not sure on standard pricing...but that's a beauty, and pretty cool.

I've seen a lot of fork crown lugs in my day, and I even seen that particular style, but I don't recall ever seeing one with a space between the lug and the actual fork like that one has, all the ones I seen fit tight and brazed to perfection.

Kind of looks like there is lug material under the chrome but the chrome overlays it and hangs a bit long like a curtain.
Cool bike nonetheless and appears to have close to zero miles. I have never heard of the brand so I have no opinion on value.

Looks to me like the factory used the wrong size lug and brazed it anyways. OR maybe the fork was redone years ago? Someone may have replaced either the fork or the crown and didn't get the right size. Just guessing on this of course.

Edit: the more I think about this the more I think the fork blades were replaced using a Imperial oval shaped blade going into a Continental oval shaped lug. It's possible the factory did that by mistake or ran out of Continental shaped blades which I doubt, but not impossible.

I'm still really digging the bike...and I think I'd drop 450 under different circumstances. There's just something about it that I like - the geoemtry and paint are part of it. Looks like a great early sports tourer.

It almost looks like the fork has a sloping (unicrown) with a 'fake' chrome crown.

Ok, I just found another Sutton, apparently from the pics Sutton made their fork crowns like that, not sure why but they did; see: https://www.flickr.com/photos/myklem...7627011241068/ The pic of the crown and fork is a bit crusty but you can see the gap if you look closely. I can't recall ever seeing a crown and fork made like that, or perhaps never noticed.

And I think too that the style of them doing this would be very unique, even the lugs that I see in the pics have a unique quality to it. I don't know about this bike, in the condition it's in...it's rare...I would go out on a limb and buy it if it were near me. Just have to find the period correct Dura Ace rear derailleur that came from the factory with.

I've seen them like that when it's not actually the crown overhanging, but a chrome overlay that fits on the crown. Schwinn did that on the Suburban iirc. Maybe this is same. Hope so.

But yeah, interesting mix of highend and low end elements on same frame. I see that a lot in this era -- maybe this time is when the major Japanese companies were just learning how to break into the semi-pro and pro markets.

Edit: Yes, here is a decorative Schwinn Suburban crown cap:

Someone would really have to do some digging to find out what the original equipment was suppose to be on this bike, it may be all original, it may mean trying to find the original builders and or company owners and ask them. I do recall some of the early examples of Japanese companies doing the sort of thing of mixing highend with lowend components, which to me struck me as odd, it was the same with cars, bulletproof mechanicals junky everything else.

That site I gave with the pics of the same bike maybe that guy could be useful in getting information.

Me too...I think it's such an interesting early import/transition bike. I like the lines and I love the aesthetics. I dig it, but I'm attracted to the weirdos (no, I'm not calling my wife a weirdo). I even like the crazy fork crown.

I hope someone here is either in Chicago or near enough to go get that bike and do it pronto before someone else figures it all out. It would be great if a forum member got it so we can all talk about it.

DeRosa at $350, anyone? Probably gone by the time I finished typing.

[h=2]Early 80's vintage DeRosa - $350 (Globe) [/h]
image 1 of 4









I have an early 1980's vintage 58 cm (center to center) for sale. It has complete era parts of Campagnolo record and super record parts, Cinelli stem and bar, Mavic rims on record low flange hubs, and a Regina freewheel. All it needs is a chain. The frame was repainted professionally and factory decals applied. The lugwork confirms the authenticity.
