Glen in Kansas City sent in this 1973 Araya. Yes, this is the same Araya of wheel fame. This baby has it all: foam grips, safety levers, quilted racing saddle, spoon handle shifters, center-pulls, chrome fork blades, and of course a proper chrome pie plate.
My neighbor was cleaning his garage, and asked me if I wanted some old bikes.
Of course! This is one of them.
It has a Suntour V GT Luxe rear, and Compe V front derailleur. All I have done so far clean the dust and spider webs off. Tires are getting dry, but tubes hold air, and rides fine!
