Shige-san's Blog (A Wealth of Information)

来週、日本語で新しく投稿します。

There are many things that make restoration difficult and certainly one of them is information.  Getting photos and other information on bicycles that were manufactured over a half century ago is not easy.  The vast majority of the manufacturers are long gone.  A little over a year ago when I was searching for information to help me with parts for a NOS Hikari frame, I received an email from Shige-san with quite a few photos on Hikari bicycles.

Shige-san is the proud owner of a very nice Hikari bicycle.

So nice in fact, some of you may recall I used it as an example and ran a five consecutive post series on just how many times a company name/logo appears on one bicycle.  It turned out that the Hikari mark or manufacturer's name DNB (Dai Nippon Bicycle) appeared approximately 120 times.

Shige-san not only has several vintage bicycles, but lots of parts and is well known among collectors. Shige-san operates a blog in Japanese on vintage Japanese bicycles. Since the blog is in Japanese, and thus provides a major challenge as far as navigation goes for non-Japanese, I have provided links below to several models which appear on Shige-san's blog. 

Eirin, Katakura Silk, Kawamura, Miyata, Sekine, Noritsu, Bridgestone,, Nichibei Fuji (Hao), NichibeiFuji, Yamaguchi, Marukin, Maruishi, Mayam, Mitsuba, Hidori, Mistubishi Juji, and others. 

Be sure to check out Shige-san's Nichibei Fuji (Hao) which he is in the process of restoring.

There's lots more to see, just play with the links on the left side of the page.
