Re: 1981 Apollo

G'Day,

Apollo bikes were sold in Australia. I have a Team Apollo, which looks similar to the chrome frame on the left. It has all the good bits from the early eighties ie. Tange ARX forks, Suntour Sealed Hubs, 7X rims with DB stainless spokes..... I bought it the 1st time almost 20 years ago from a mate. Then I sold it when I finished school. A few years later by chance, I ran into the guy who i sold it to. He still had it but one of the bearings in the rear wheel was stuffed. $50.00 later the bike was mine again and I still had the replacement bearing in my folks garage.

I am on the hunt for some replacement parts with a full restore in mind....

I hope this helps...

Re: 1981 Apollo

Damn dude i had a Team Apollo in the early eighties...i never knew a lot existed..i paid $100 in 1982..
It was my first REAL bike..same stuff sealed bearings Arayas etc i also had original CWs on it too..
It was chrome and black..For those interested Apollo released their range in MK's similar to Redline..
MK1 being entry level..MKII a little better..MKIII better still..cant remember but think there was a MKIV and then on to the Team Apollo..i really loved this bike and it took heaps of abuse..the usually tuff Arayas were the weak link and the frame handled very well...The frame had oval shaped bars similar to a PK but not as blatent..it also had a little indented ridge along the apex of the bars..never seen nor heard of any other examples exept my own but new they were out there..I ended up selling it for $50 after i got my GT in 85 and unfortunately i didnt recieve all of the money in the end..damn..would really love to see a good example turn up here someday...

Re: 1981 Apollo

I realize thatbthis is an old thread, but im a noobie and also had a mk111 and then a Team 82 bitd. The Apollos were imported from Japan into Australia out of the same factory as Kuwahara. Am lucky to have sourced one and pick it up next week.smile
