I was at a recent Estate Sale in Longmeadow, Mass. found a LOTUS 'ECLAIR 12 speed. Shimano Deore brakes/derailleurs. no rust. very nice condition. 51 cm frame. very nice vintage bike for $20 ! not sure on date of production.... I suspect early 1980's

Busted out my trusty old bike today, an 82 Lotus Elite, to ride with my now adult-sized daughter and the new adult bike she just got. Am reminded how fast that bike is! Felt 35 years younger, until I got off it. Ow.

Approximately a year ago I picked up a 58cm Lotus America road bike that stored in a barn for 15 years, that seller said.I bought it for $65. Got it home, stripped it, cleaned it thoroughly, and converted it into my 'bad weather. single speed, bike.' The 27 - inch rear wheels where shot. Luckily, I had a 27 - inch front in my garage, so I went to my local LBS and had a new rear wheel built. GREAT BIKE!

Enjoyed your site! I'm into the springer and skip tooth Bikes or any thing with a tank, LOL . Hope you can use the literature I sent or pass along to someone into the older generation like me. I also love pedal cars and tricycles if you ever run into parts, thats my thing. Lately, I'm into 67-72 Chevrolet trucks, they fit my butt better !! Jerry

Hello I just picked up a beautiful barn find what believe is a 1986 Lotus legend. The bike could not have more than 100 miles on it. I cleaned it up greased it replaced the original irc tires and have been riding it. It rides like a dream, a real awesome barn find. How can I upload pictures for everyone to enjoy? The serial number is ycc1993 I got this number from the frame under the bottom bracket.
