Custom Yamaguchi Benny

次回この記事の日本語版を投稿します。

Here is a fine customized Yamaguchi Benny, possibly a Marubeni-Yamaguchi Benny,  sent in from U-san.  According to U-san he fell in love with old utility bicycles due to how well they were made, not to mention their durability.  Riding a comfortable, simple clean machine is how U-san relieves stress, an upright position and limited speed ensures that he can take in the scenery and enjoy the ride thereby forgetting daily cares.

Let's take a look at some of the additions.  First off is a pair of manually operated turn signals.

A nice cylindrical leather tool pouch (←link Japanese only) designed to fit in the loops of the hammock saddle.

Add a box to the rear carrier and it is like being transported back in time 50 years.Dsc_0285

A big thanks goes out to U-san for sharing photos of his cusomized Yamaguchi Benny.  If you would like to share photos of your vintage Japanese bicycle with other enthusiasts please send them to showajitensha@hotmail.co.jp
