Those were actually built by a Japanese builder who lives in Rifle, CO. named Yamaguchi.

The Team GT bike is later, 90's. Not sure I follow what you're referring to regarding glue and screw though.
Those Raleigh used cast lugs that were made for the tubes to be glued with a new type of glue. Vitus were making bikes like that already. Those head tube lugs were a heavy affair. Marrying the stem to the fork also was heavy. The object was, of course, to punch a smaller hole in the air and to allow a better slipstream in a pursuit race. They could not make the head tube as aero as they would have liked to match the (then) new True Temper and Reynolds aero tubing. I remember reading several articles about that bicycle including the one you posted. That original super bike is what sparked my permanent fascination with composite bicycles.

Was looking for special parts... got lost.
I've seen this Huffy.

Looking for a Guru TT and Pinarello for the summer.

The kid's bike in 2nd video was better and he wants a Motocykes:21: I mean, if it was the 70s ok.
It looks like the late eighties early nineties. Still make similar things today.

The red specialised as a wear and tear blackhole fork which is the most valuable bike fort in the world. A bike with it on Ebay went for $15000.
Paul Lew invented that fork/wheel system. I never saw a man put out so much publicity for a product that yielded so few examples. I had some of his race wheels (which became the basis of the Reynolds composite wheels) that were on fire sale when he sold out. No doubt the lightest wheel I had seen with production components (Ada and Lightweight were lighter but used carbon hubs and spokes). I wonder what Paul Lew is doing these days?
