    Bridgestone Raku-Raku

    Bridgestone Raku-Raku - Size 22/24, Nexus 3-Speed, Front Bridgestone Tentamushi Hub, Stainless Carrier / Rims, Adjustable Seat Height, and OGK Baby Carrier or Basket. Special features of this bicycle are the lowered frame and adjustable seat height for easy handling. I personally choose the color scheme on the frame and fender.

    Bridgestone Raku-Raku.


    OGK Child Carrier/Basket.


    Chain Cover with Raku-Raku sticker


    Seat mechanism for seat height adjustment.

    Cool thread Sancycles.

    Have you ever seen/built a sporterized Jitensha or Mamachari?

    In other words, a bike of this type thats been stripped down to the bare essentials...no fenders, racks or baskets. Etc.

    Yes, I regularly stripped down Jitenshas to get the special parts. It's more cheaper to stripped down a bicycle to get parts instead of buying new parts which is expensive. I'll post one bicycle stripped down.

    I spent two months in Cebu winter before last. Besides the Bicycle Taxis I saw a few "Guerrilla Bikers" plying the streets. Mostly they looked like men going to and from laborer jobs. Usually on cheap mountain bikes in varied states of repair, outfitted in cut off shorts, T shirts and flipflops with a T shirt covering their heads like a mask to filter out the diesel fumes.

    While on our morning walk we saw a white guy climbing up Maria Louisa Road. He didn't speak but was out of the saddle huffing and puffing. Ten minutes later he came coasting back down.

    Riding a bike in Cebu City proper looked like a sure way to get hurt. The automobiles, vans and jeepneys do not give way to pedestrians OR bicyclists!

    Stripp down

    Here's how a mamachari looks after a stripped down. This bike belongs to my friend. He transfered the 3-Speed, Stainless Fenders / Carrier and Nexus Dynamo Hub to his other bike which has alloy frame. The stainless steel rims will soon to follow.

    Service Bike

    Marfeel - Size 20, single speed, no shinning accessories except handlebar and bell. My service bike for going to groceries and going errands. Something useful during the rainy season. Who knows I may one day decide to give it a new look. I bought this bicycle primarily because it has stainless steel rims which are rarely found in size 20 bicycles. I installed the stainless rims in one of my bicycle. The frackers handlebar was used here to match the plastic basket. The tires are worn out so gum side tires was used as replacement. Usually white side tires are preferables among cyclist of Japanese bicycles.

    Wow, look at that lax head tube angle! I bet Mama could breastfeed a baby in her arms and ride no-hands.

    I'd love to see a mamachari all tricked out, just for fun.

    Very interesting change from when I was in the Philippines as a kid. Very few bicycles in use in the 1950s and early 60s. The family was in Batangas as my father was manager of the Caltex oil refinery there.

    About the only time I saw a group of bikes was when the "Tour of Luzon" came through the area once a year. Other than that very few in use either in Batangas or Manila, at least that I noted. That was soon enough after WW2 that I suspect most prewar bicycles had been confiscated by the Japanese during the occupation and sent to Japan for the steel. I was told it had happened to most pre war cars there.
    Gear Hubs Owned: Rohloff disc brake, SRAM iM9 disc brake, SRAM P5 freewheel, Sachs Torpedo 3 speed freewheel, NuVinci CVT, Shimano Alfine SG S-501, Sturmey Archer S5-2 Alloy. Other: 83 Colnago Super Record, Univega Via De Oro

    Noglider,
    I don't sell helmets since they are available at the local bicycle store. Only mountain bike & racer riders buy them. Since our city doesn't have any highways and Jitensha bicycles are used for commuting short distances like market, groceries and schools cyclists just simply wear hats and caps. Sad to say, there isn't any city ordinance or law that requires helmet usage for bicycles. As for me and my son we use helmets during long trips when using our bicycles.
