The spiders a usually stamped I thought. The bolts and chain ring look good. Chain ring is date 1982.

Re: Takagi fake or not?

I'm 99% sure there were unstamped ones.  I believe I've seen this topic before, and had one myself that wasn't stamped.  Put it this way, I highly doubt that's a part that there would be modern reproductions of and if there were...they would be everywhere.  I think that's a legit Takagi spider.


Hutch Fun Facts: All main line Hutch's with digits only S/N (no letters or baseballs) on the rear drop outs were US made and had their dropouts stamped between late '83 and '86.  Obviously the frame manufacture would occur slightly after that, even if they just threw 'em in a bucket randomly.  There is an obvious date code in that the first 2 digits seem to be the month and the 3rd digit is pretty obviously the last digit of the year running from '83-'86.
