The Fun Stuff

One of the great things about working in the bike business is having the opportunity to see bicycles that have some history. A friend of mine brought in a bike that her brother had bought in Thailand on his way back from Vietnam in the early 1970's. It is branded "Skyway", and has some very early Suntour derailleurs. I have been unable to find out much about it so if anyone knows anything about these bikes, let us know.

It's basically not been ridden in all those years and needed some tires and a basic tune up. Mark was able to get everything working again, including those awesome headlamps.


We hope Lill enjoys many, many miles on her new old bike.

Cheers

Skyway was a sister company of Kabuki/Bridgestone.

It sure looks like an old Kabuki.
