Re: a nice find yesterday: 2 1982 loop tail Kuwahara E.T.'s

just found the likely code for the serial numbers on Jamie's site:

http://www.dreamgate.ne.jp/kuwahara/

looks like they are both 1982 based on that

Re: a nice find yesterday: 2 1982 loop tail Kuwahara E.T.'s

if it's on the top surface of the nut (as opposed to the hex sides), I don't see any markings after initial cleaning...on the crank set for either bike

what does this all mean?

according to Jamie's site one is a Tange 1982 May lot, and the other is a Tange 1982 August lot

Here is bike #2:

Re: a nice find yesterday: 2 1982 loop tail Kuwahara E.T.'s

After the photobucket dissaster I am finally putting pics back on my posts 1 by 1. This topic was my first post on the museum. I kept these bikes for quite a while. I finally sold one frame/fork/headset to a member here in Brazil. He had all of the gold anodized parts for it. i still have the remaining parts for that one. I sold the other one to another member here as a complete. That was the one I call bike #1.

Here are some more pics that were linked to photobucket at one point:
