I know nothing about Suteki's. This looks like an early to mid 80's bike.

Your best bet on narrowing that down is going to be checking the stamp codes on the brakes and derailleur and then comparing them to information on this forum and on the vintage Trek site.

I picked up a nearly identical Suteki for my wife a little wile back. Hers is mid '80s and has all Shimano 600 components. These were sold at Sears throughout the '80s. As mentioned above check the date codes on the components and look them up here:https://www.vintage-trek.com/component_dates.htm.

They were advertised in the 1983 Sears Christmas catalog. I don't think Sears sold these bikes for very long so they all are probable from 1982/84. My daughter likes her Suteki mixte.

I just picked up a Suteki Track 10 mixte, 49 cm frame size. It was sitting by the curb on big trash night.

Looks just like the one in the first post, same rack and all. Shimano 600 derailleurs, full (perfect) fenders. Covered in dust and the tires have dry rot, but they hold air. As far as I can tell everything is complete and original. On the stand it shifts perfectly and the brakes are well adjusted.

It's gorgeous but too small for me. Great bike porn though.

I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.
