Very nice build. I'm actually quite interested in RekTek. I grew up in Vancouver and was in high school (senior secondary for you Brits?) in the late 80s. I own a steel RekTek that I begged, borrowed, and stole (not really
) to afford. I bought it in 1989. It came fully equipped with the latest greatest XT group from Shimano, a very cutting edge Tange Prestige switchblade fork, Syncros seatpost and stem, etc etc. I bought it from the Reckless Rider bike shop in Vancouver (I guess the Rek comes from Reckless. Not sure about the Tek). It was located just under the Granville Street bridge near the entrance to the Granville Market. I remember that they had a painting room in the back were the frames would get sprayed. I don't actually know where the frames were made though. I remember someone at the shop telling me that they were welded at the Syncros factory and painted at the bike shop. However, I've never been able to verify this. For All I know the frames were made in Taiwan? So I guess the main reason for digging up this relatively old post is to see if I can shine any light on the history of RekTek. Does anyone else own a RekTek frame? My frame has a serial number on it 2635. I find it hard to believe that a little bike shop in Vancouver sold 2634 bikes before mine. Perhaps it is someone else's design?
