    So where can you park bikes legaly in Japan? I thought some peopke here had problems not being able to bring a bike into their apartment building but Japan looks worse!

    Yes you must get a certificate from City Hall which states you have a parking space for your car before you buy it. There are exceptions for minicars though.

    In Kyoto City, City Hall has started to instaul bike parking but you must pay 100 yen an hour to use most of them. You can find some which are free for the first two hours but they are rare. This one I use is free for the first two hours and then 150yen for 24 hours. Also, as ifold mentioned, many apartments do have bicycle parking for tenants.

    I bought a Bridgestone Picnica Wagon that was submerged under water during a flood 2 years ago. My mechanic dismantled the whole trike for a general overhaul and painting.



    Water still stored inside the tubes.

    Here's how my Miyata Alight looks like as of today. Picture taken after a heavy downpour.
    Added a bottle holder and changed the front black carrier to a chromed tall carrier to hold a small basket. BP headlight was also added.

Indeed department store bikes ran for $140+. I still went ahead with the repairs and the repair costs because I hate a bike that could ride many years go to waste and work deserves to be paid for. For most Japanese, though, a bike turns out to be a commodity not worthy of much fuss.

    Bridgestone Cotton House - Initial assembly after frame painting. Masking tape was applied to the frame for protection while being assembled.

    I do collect Japanese surplus bicycles and restore them as parts come-by. I sometimes buy a bicycle for particular parts I need. If ever my bicycle becomes ordinary meaning a lot is running around I do trade or sell them that's why most of my collection have rare frame design or geometry. I do customize some unbranded ones for as long I have parts and accessories lying around. Thanks for viewing.

    You can't simply change them. One is chain driven and the other belt driven. You'll be changing
    some parts for it to work out.

    You can simply change the internal dynamo hub which is available here. Would cost from 600 to 800 pesos plus an LED headlight for 1500 or the regular sensored headlight for 400 pesos.

    Just saved this cruiser on it's way to a junk shop. I had it dismantled for restoration.

    Thanks Mang Boy, May I drop by one of these days ? I would like to get a replacement regular sensored headlight or LED unit. I think my internal dynamo hub is still ok.
    kind regards to you and Mark, and looking forward to my Malabon visit .

    Had this basket powder coated. I'll be matching this basket with the newly painted bicycle I am restoring.

    Another powder coated basket for my 3 wheeler. You save more on powder coating instead of using the regular spraying process.
