Can you help to identify these frames, bikes or parts?

  • I saw this road bike with a "shimano super aero" head badge and is apparently Tange 900 tuning and I have absolutely no idea what it is! Shimano Biopace chainrings and "exage sport" groupset. Any clues at all or any tips for identifying mystery frames? Never really had to do it before.

    Not sure about the shimano badge - I don't think Shimano made their own bikes, though I've seen plenty of old frames with Shimano stickers, although it may have been a demo bike or something.
    Tange 900 is a reasonable clue though - Lugged Tange road frames were not common among European builders and usually indicate Japanese or New World manufacturers e.g. Koga Miyata, Centurion, Shogun, Nishiki, Schwinn, Trek, Ricardo - The kind of bikes we didn't see here in the UK until the MTB boom

  • Yeah I thought it might just have been rebadged! Any tips for working out how much it might be worth?

  • Are you buying or selling?
    Completed listings search on ebay is probably the best bet for an open market valuation
    If you're selling, knowing the brand will help you exploit the full value...
    Although this might be no lesser a bike than an equivalent Koga Miyata, without the stickers/i.d. you won't get Koga Miyata (or even Peugeot) money for it....
    Ballpark figure for complete bike would be £100ish

  • Selling, on a trial shift at my LBS and my task for the day is to work out a rough price for it! I've cheated, ha ha.

  • ^Risky business, staking your professional reputation on the opinions of a complete stranger...

  • Hello.
    Bought this frame some time ago and was wondering what could it be.

    Yesterday the seller contacted me and told that it was some nameless track bike that got into an accident and the headlug was replaced. Originally it was loaded with Campagnolo parts. Here are some pics before the crash:

  • Bought a LoPro today, looking for the model:

  • ^Amazing Looks like a lo-pro version of the Carbitubo's that the Ariostea team were riding in 1991.
    e.g. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/--krFWus2zd8/Tw­jw7TzHtHI/AAAAAAAAMDE/spACLn0rjzc/s400/3­16033_10150486076898035_224451888034_105­90662_2135207279_n.jpg
    I found a pic of a Lo-Pro from that team during the same year - sadly it's a bit blurred but it shows something quite similar - even down to the wheels - unfortunately it has a sloping top tube, but i'm guessing this is an early 90's carbitubo lo-pro.

    wrapover seatstays and fork crown really look like gazelle..

    have you had a look under the bb shell for engravings/stamps/markings?

  • have you had a look under the bb shell for engravings/stamps/markings?

    Sure. It has a small oval EDA logo pressed and a serial F5149.

    After the crash:

  • does anyone recognize this frame? i think i've seen it somewhere, but cannot recall what it was..

  • I'm new to road brakes. I think the pads I got with some Tektro calipers are munching my rims. So, could someone tell me what pattern/shape these are and recommend a compatible pad that will work in the wet and dry (with alloy rims) and that wont grind through my rims at quite such a rate. Thanks!

  • After the crash:

    Same lugs as XB3

  • Has anyone heard something about Barrosi brand or bikes? Got myself one alloy track frameset apparently from the Nederlands (paintjob in flag colors), but can't find any more details about it.

    Thanks!

  • Hello.

    A friend of mine just got a ST64cm Mercier (yea, that big ahah)
    He aims to restore it to it's prime and asked for help to try and ID the steel the frameset is made from (pure curiosity as the sticker is all but torned out) and decade. Has no serial that we could attest, and has a jumble of components. Below the link of some pics of details in the bike.

    Any help is appreciated.

  • Same lugs as XB3

    I'd say that it can't be XB3 because they didn't do small sizes, and dropout's are different.

  • My carlton flyer track has similar looking lugs, fork crown and wrapover seat stays as the before photos. I think it has a a similar (somewhat mystery) serial number in a similar place on the bottom bracket too, though can't remember for sure about an oval stamp. I can check tommorrow for you if you like?

    I think it's early 70's-don't know the exact year, haven't worked that out yet for sure, but the guy I got it from claims he owned from the 70's. Those track ends look like the ones on carlton/raleigh proffessional too, and that would also explain the campagnolo parts it had too although obviously these could be added to anything.)

  • Above was in reference to this.

    I doubt it being a Carlton as it seem to have different crowns. A Raleigh maybe?

    Any further info is welcome. Thanks!

    I'm not sure, but I can promise my carlton has almost identical fork crowns to that. almost identical to raleigh track frames from that period too- they were basically interchangeable by that stage it seems.(as Raleigh bought out Carlton in 1960.) The serial number is definitely F followed by a four digit number too, as were some Raleighs of this period. It doesn't have an oval stamp mind.

  • Hey guys,

    I am in trouble classifying and dating my F. Moser aero frame. Can somebody please help me out? Maybe one of you could give me a hint for a Moser catalog with this bike in?

    This frame has an oval shaped lower tube and seat tube, also oval shaped stays. Seat tube has a 27.2mm diameter, so I assume it's Columbus SL Tubing. The banderole on the seat tube does say San Christobal, but there are so many different bikes to find over that name, I don't think thats the model name.

    You can find pics in my photo album: http://fotos.rennrad-news.de/s/14532

    I did eventually find a bike thats similar to mine, but can't find any further info on that either. So I'm still looking for some answers...

  • Anyone recognise this bartape?
    Feels soft with a great grip and good damping abilities I'd guess. Couldn't find any branding on it.

    Cheers!

  • you can search"white bar tape" on ebay, you will find a lot of
    reproductions of the leather one that was available in 80s.

    I agree it's not an XB3, I was just saying that it had the same lugs.

  • Can anyone help me recognize this one?
