    old Japanese roadster

    I just purchased an old Japanese roadster off of eBay.
    It's a Marubishi, I've been told.
    From the late '40s.
    Supposedly war-booty.
    Anyone know anything about this brand of bike?

    Nice.
    I like that seat, would ask if you're selling it but it really should stay with the bike.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"
