Way Older Japanese Bicycles

I was actually just trying to find some info on Azuki bicycles when I came across this website:

http://www.eva.hi-ho.ne.jp/ootsu/

Thought all you history buffs would get a kick out of these 19th century Japanese bicycles!

Speaking of which, I was in Tokyo about a month ago and visited the "Edo Tokyo Museum". They had a really neat bicycle collection on display. Many were old Japanese bicycles. True to Japanese form, even the old bikes had some inovative gadgets on them.

I've got one, possibly interested in parting with her, she has little to no miles on her, all origional parts except tires, clips, seat, interesting piece of history.

You clicked on a nearly 8 year old link. You're lucky there was even a server there.

This should help in your Azuki search, although I suspect you've already seen it.
