I came across this in a shop in Tokyo yesterday but I can't find any info. Is anyone familiar with a maker with the initials FB? I've spent half an hour searching the net but all I can find are FB hubs and such.
Sorry about the angles of the pics but the bike was hung front down on a wall. The mechanic in the shop didn't know what it was. He did have a lovely 1939 Hetchins path outside, his personal ride.
When I took the photos I thought the floral motif that covers the frame was hand painted but looking at the photos on my computer, blown up, they look like transfers.
Anyway, the machine:
