Excellent

Excellent collection sir !

I always look forward to your posts !

Thank you for our phone conversation a few months ago, about electric bikes. I am grateful for your guidance on the difference between the japan electric bikes and the china e-bikes. I look forward to visiting malabon and meeting you and your bikes after rainy season.

Thanks and kind regards to all

I don't think it would break, but it would flex a lot under pedaling forces.

A very practical bike ... until you have to fix a rear flat.

I have to give you guys props for riding in the streets of Manila. I was in Manila a few months back and there is no way I would ride the streets with those crazy drivers swerving all over the place(including a jeepney going up the sidewalk). Maybe with practice...Maybe... Sweet bike commuters. I love the looks of some of those racks.

Cateye Child Carrier

Just bought a surplus Cateye Child Carrier. Replacement for a child carrier on one of my commuter bicycles. It's compact in size not like the other carriers which are bulky in size. Photos to be taken by tomorrow.

Are those not the guys that make the honjo fenders?

As far as TOEI custom bikes those are made a few km from my house here in Japan. The factory is in Kawaguchi, Saitama.

Custom Commuter Bicycle

Bicycle frame came from an electric Yamaha PAS. I removed the battery compartments and installed stainless steel rims, spokes, basket and carrier. A Nexus 3-speed hub and dynamo hub were also installed. I previously used a mountain bike child carrier but it was so bulky and decided to place instead a Cat Eye Child carrier. Hardlock, bottle holder, anti-swing, and wheel reflectors were added.

Nexus Sensored Headlight

Stainless Basket

White Sided Tires with Large Circular Reflectors mounted on the spokes.

Hardlock
