Araya Aerodynamics

Hi! I have a Araya Aero frame from the early 1980's. It's serial number is ARYK158. As you can see it's repainted. I will try to restore the frame as it was before. Is there someone that has better pictures of the Araya bike or maybe the Vista bike? Other information would be nice as well. I have tried to contact Araya but they don't know how the bike was branded when it was new.

The aero era,,1980-83 was pretty short. The Shimano AX components many aero bikes had are pretty pricey today. You could find a doner bike to harvest the parts from. Chris

+1. That seatpost is going to be darn hard to find. They were rare back in the day. The rest of the parts are relatively standard, but only the special Aero seatposts fit that frame.

I already have all the parts for the bike. However, I want it to be authentic. Therefore, I intend to reproduce the decals. What do you think? Araya or Vista branded?

I think stay with Araya, but you are going have the decals custom done.

I think that you are right and that's why I need better photos of the Araya bike.
