1978 Araya Swallow

This the first generation Araya Swallow bmx in 1978.
Re-powders with new decals set make it back to life again!
I think, Araya bmx frame are very rare to find today.

I think you're correct that is probably quite rare. Nice work!

I dig the lathed headtube with the reinforcing rings...that seems mighty progressive for a frame manufactured in 1978!

Sweet bike!
Cock of the walk on my block.

Do you build it up and put it back in the wooden cases?
Really cool collection!
