    HELP! Can anyone help me identify this Araya Frame?

    From what I can tell, its built for 26in wheels. Has Downtube shifters and the steerer tube says Tange on it.

    It was repainted when we found it but upon taking of the paint, we saw its an Araya. Perhaps a Japan only model. Any thoughts or leads? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!HELP!

    They made some really decent lugged road frames. I have seen one other MTB or ATB version but never one with shifters on the downtube. Looks like an early attempt at entering the market. The one I saw was well made. Maybe the guys over at bmx museum can help. Careful though, they are kinda touchy.

    Thanks! I'm beginning to suspect it may not be as old as I think it is. The bearings and steerer tube are in really good condition. I saw on their website they still make some current bikes with down tube shifters.
