I have this bike that I bought at a local store, I'm from Costa Rica> The manager sold it to me as a Benotto, but I can not find anything that tells me that it is apart from the stickers. The headtube lugs have a form that I have not been able to find in any other type of vintage bicycle. Is it simply a generic frame of the 80s?

On the bottom bracket shell it says only JSP 251

  • I find this for "Benotto": steel-vintage.com/benotto – Daniel R Hicks Mar 20 at 0:20
  • Otherwise, "generic frame from the 80s" is about right, though it could be the 90s. The plastic cable guide, non-cottered cranks, and downtube shifters suggest that it's newer than the 70s. – Daniel R Hicks Mar 20 at 0:25
  • (I suspect that if you dig into the Benotto brand you may find that they were manufactured in South America during the years of interest.) – Daniel R Hicks Mar 20 at 0:29

  • Thank you very much, unfortunately I did not see a similar, the more I see my bike the more it seems to me that it is only a generic one, I hope someone identifies it, but it is interesting that thing you mention of the 90s, I did not know that detail, I will look for similar 90s bikes ... – Keylor Gonzalez Mar 20 at 1:04
