Now for today's insignificant question. In the old days, which is to say when today's C&V bikes weren't C&V at all, most could be identified with a particular nationality. A Peugeot or Gitane was unambiguously a French bike, a Raleigh English, a Fuji Japanese, etc. The place of manufacture was clear, as were the source of most of the parts and the site of the corporate HQ and ownership. Then things got scrambled.
What would one call, say, a Bianchi made in the far east, or a Masi made in the US, or a Peugeot made in Canada? Is it even possible to make such a pronouncement?
