Sign of the past
It always amazes me that here in modern day Japan, one can still come across a bicycle sitting outside an old Mom & Pop family run shop that is over half a century old. This carrier bicycle obviously bears the battle scars of many years of faithful service and appears to have been recently retired.
The trade mark was casted into the bolts used on the front fork stabilizers.
Amazing, produced over a half century ago, the cloisonne head badge is still in fine condition.
Even the rear fender stay badge is in excellent shape.
The workmanship that went into building these wonderful machines is amazing. Simple and sturdy manufactured back when durability and dependability were more important than eye-appeal. Truly built-to-last.
