Re: 1980 Laguna Cruiser 26

did a little research and believe it's an '80 or '81. If the rims are original to the bike (which I believe they are) it would mean it's a late 80 or an 81, as it appears that Araya 7X came out in late 80 early 81. I don't know if the serial number reveals the date or if it's just the production number. If it does, possibly the 07 refers to July 1980? If anyone has info on Laguna serial numbers please let me know.
