Great site on Sekai

Im still trying to ID my unknown 1977 frame. I found a 1979 ad in “Bicycle Motocross Action in a 1979 issue with a bike just like mine. Leading me to believe if Sekai was in business in 1977 it may be a Sekai. Then I found this great Sekai fan site: http://www.yellowjersey.org/sekai.html

Here is some quick info from it

We proudly sold Sekai bicycles from 1973 until their death around 1986.
Mr Katsu Yamashita worked tirelessly from his family’s firm,
Shinwa Trading Company, to ensure the very best quality and arrange all the myriad details of these wonderful bicycles.
Frames were built by Yamaguchi Frame in Osaka.
Professional Sekai frames, models 4000 and 5000, both road and track, were built by Miki
. Assembly was done at Sakai Export, Osaka.”
