Sorry Paul do you only want survivor?

Yeah, sorry mate. It looks awesome though. Dan seems to have nailed that colour  :shocked: 8)
The idea was for this to help weed out any uncertainty with converted Hot Hearts.

Would this thread be better as a stickie? It is an on-going project that invites input and provides a useful primary source.
Wanted: Shimano Aero frame
Wanted: Tange Axeblade frame

Looking at the data collected so far (subject to change):

Kuwahara ET

Production dates found - May - Dec 1982
Production numbers from - 0081 - 5838

If production numbers ran each month from 0001 to at least 5838, from May - Dec an estimated total of 46,704 frames would have been made.

No survivor T3 stamped frames have been found.

Hot Heart

All T2 stamped frames with no TANGE JAPAN stamp have only been found in chrome. The earliest of these T2 frames date from May 1982.

Paul

This one has popped up on the Midlands page this morning. Could be a new one.

Thanks for all the continued contributions to the database. Sorry for being a bit slow on the updates but I’m back on it now. Keep them coming ;)

I’ve seen suspect Kuwahara ET crop up for sale claiming to be OG paint but owners not willing to provide proof of serial numbers so be careful out there.

This has to be one of the cleanest survivor AGU Hothearts I’ve ever seen (currently for sale on eBay). Nice to see one in the red colour option as well (they came in red, blue & black) ;)

This early T2 Hotheart came and went quickly on eBay. Hopefully it’ll remain this way :/





Remember, Keep ‘em Peeled!

Had to ask the owner a few questions but looks very much like original paint, as there’s evidence of grey primer, which is consistent with most of the others posted on here
