SEKINE SERIAL NUMBERS

 

BICYCLES OF CANADA

 

  

SERIAL NUMBER, MODEL & VINTAGE
 
Sekine bicycles, those manufactured in Rivers Manitoba, during most of the seventies and very early eighties, were plentiful in Canada.  It is still not uncommon to run across one, when searching for a vintage road bicycle.  With that in mind, and to help other vintage Sekine bicycle owners, here is a collection of information regarding serial numbers, models and estimated vintage.  The database, for lack of a better word, is ongoing and, as more Sekines pass through The Old Shed, the information they provide will be added below.
 
The information collected, from each bicycle includes the serial number as well as component date codes, often times located on different bicycle components.  For example, if a steering stem had the code 74, one would have to conclude the part to have been made in 1974.  This does not mean that the bicycles is also of 1974 vintage since parts manufactured in a previous year might well find themselves fitted to a bicycle manufactured the following year.
 
None the less, attempts have been made to identify both the model and the vintage of the following bicycles.
