You could be the proud owner of this vintage blue Sekai road bicycle. This Tange steel lugged frame was made in Japan in 1979. Sekai bicycles were around until 1986. Katsu Yamashita worked from his family's firm Shinwas Trading Company. The frames were built by Yamaguchi Frame in Osaka Japan. This bicycle is looking for a new home and it could be yours.


This bicycle has chips in the paint, and surface corrosion where the paint is missing. Handlebar tape is torn, and some surface corrosion on the rims as well. This bicycle appears to be rideable, but we would recommend a tune up or safety check over by a qualified mechanic before riding.

This bicycle is being sold as is, please see photographs for details.
