1984 Kuwahara Laserlite

Lightening Fast right of the rack!

Lucky to find this almost all original Laser Lite locally.
This was Kuwahara's top of the line complete race bike. This one doesn't have the Sugino 400 three piece cranks but I have heard that some shops used to swap them out to get the price on these a bit lower so they would sell easier. Not sure the real story but these looked to be stock when I removed them for cleaning and new grease.My best friend use to have one of these back in the day, so it was a must have for the collection.This is an early 84 as it still has both oval top and down tubes.Something I found cool is that they came from the factory with only one chain tensioner on the drive side. I have had three og Kuwi's all with the same detail, must be a stock thing.

Re: 1984 Kuwahara Laserlite

Gotta love a Laserlite, recently got hold of one myself, ride it most days! I too have the one piece surgino crank (400's are SO expensive!) and have heard the same story regards swapping out to reduce cost b.i.t.d.
Yours appears to be missing the same original parts as mine (seat, grips, araya rims etc) What did everyone do with their elina seats and ogk grips back then! smile

This 84 is only missing tires, chain, and seat. Cranks are debatable as this setup is what it was purchased with. The Kuwi stamped Tange grips are og, Araya 7x with sealed Suntour hubs are also og. Very cool ride.

Cool!, seems there's lots of varients around (maybe differences between 83's & 84's etc) i had read an og laserlite came with OGK Cobra grips and Araya 7x Chrome rims as stock (which mine doesn't have sadly!)

Might just have been an availability thing, I have read in magazine tests that they either came with 7x or Ukai wheels. Kind of like when Mongoose ran out of unbranded hoops for thier pro class wheels they used Sumo, and Araya hoops to drill up as a substitute.
