Bunch of misinformed goons as normal on here.

Its a 20” beach cruiser frame made by Raleigh for K-Mart to sell on the east coast only, from 1968 to 1975. It only came as a complete, so this ones been fully stripped of oem parts, shame really:-( They are supposed to have tall non-cross bar type handle bars, Ashtabula forks, and a yellow banana seat if I remember correctly the full factory sponsered one my neighbor raced BITD.

Also, Its well documented on BMX-Society (they are really really smart over there) that the back section is like that as a rack for your surf board, or carton of cigs for you mom.

Another member gave me the same answer in a PM, but if you look really close at the brazing on the 2 coaster brake tabs, you can see the splatter patterns differ. So, either this was made in Raleigh's San Junipero factory, which was well documented as having only produced their Pro Scooter Team Models, or the mystery still isn't solved...

I don't know...out of all the ones you posted, I think the Aero Reflex is the closest. But, look closely at the cross tubes. See the 5th one from the back? That one is clearly floval, not rectangle.

What Kurt didn't say is that it's the Canadian Hutch.

It's understandable, in Mexico they don't call it Mexican food, it's just food. Same idea.

Some kind of girls bike judging from the color. I like the built in luggage rack though. Are those things sticking out of the bottom a kickstand mount? If so, probably a Cycle Pro. I know everything about bikes!

Looks like a shimano. Tires need air.


Looking for a small Yeti made Schwinn Homegrown MTB frame. Or other Yeti made frames. Pair of Spurs tickets to all home games for sale or trade for 80's BMX or Surly Troll 1 1/8 MTB 26er forks.
If I owe you feedback let me know.

Re: Help identify this frame! (but give only wrong answers)

You guys are all wrong (except Tyler Durden, he gets partial credit) - this is actually a prototype of MY signature frame that was supposed to be produced by Kuwaharo, but somebody decided to pull an April Fool's joke on me and put GT decals on after painting the frame in the wrong color. Originally it was supposed to be my signature doodoo brown color and the decals were supposed to depict me riding an anodized blue dolphin. The design had also been changed from my original sketches (more on that later).

There had already been issues with my contract not being fulfilled by the other party and this was the last straw. When the frame showed up at my house, I went to the library and looked up the book of state zip codes and randomly picked one to send the frame to. I then made a sample of my signature color on my contract and mailed it back to Kuwaharo as formal cancellation of my endorsement of their products.

Needless to say, the frame was never mass produced but unbeknownst to me (before receiving it), the drafter at Kuwaharo that did up the final plans actually had stolen plans from GT sent to the fab shop and to this day, you can't tell that this frame is anything other than a mass produced GT.

Dude! The same crap happened to me back when I rode for Hoffman Bikes in 1981/82!! Except in my case what happened was they kept putting the auxiliary seatpost tubes on the backside of the forks, instead of the front! I mean, we’ve all been there before, sure, but after 3 frame / fork combos with the exact same mistake, I gave up. I hate to sound arrogant, but Hoffman’s freestyle sidehack team was never the same for the rest of the 80s after I bounced.
