Could OTSs have 9 lives? No, if they have more than 1 they would have to have 10!Â Either way, I think we’ve found one that has spent a couple. Â Hit bike by a car when he was a lad, this 1977 Sekai started out life as a Sekai 2000 GT.Â After the accident he received a full frame transplant—the donor, a newer nicer 2500 GT.Â Then, shortly after Bret acquired him, he was stolen then was miraculously recovered by Bret—in front of his house!Â So, this Little Sekai That Could should serve as an example to all of you who have lost a your 10-speed of dreams, whether to a wreck or a wretch.Â Don’t give up on it and it won’t give up on you. 5×2=Love
1977 Sekai rescued from a trip to the junkyard, was told by original owner that 2 weeks after getting it it was hit by a car and frame was replaced with the newer 2500 GT. All of the other hardware-gears, crank, shifters, derailleurs, etc are from the original 2000. I acquired the bike and a week later it was stolen. Today as I was sitting in my house I saw it ride by and got it back. Anyway, I know its not real clean, but like I said, I just got it back after it was taken.
