Marcel Calborn Mountain Bike Capra Special Info?


Mid eighties, Made in Japan. Incorrect rear wheel, stuck and modified seatpost. I have seen some info about the road bikes, my understanding is they were made under contract. Any ideas about this one? Serial #ARYI 751468 Thanks!

I saw that he has been around for years and is still going, I really think that is great. Honestly, I don't want to call and bother him about a 30 year old bike I got for $15 off C.L., however if he has an email address, I might... I bought it for the shifters, it isn't even my size, but if I can get the seat post free I have a friend who can use it. Thanks

Looks pretty decent to me. Marcel is a character.

I emailed Marcel a few months ago and received a prompt and courteous response.
