Beautiful Japanese Folder

i don't know if you guys are aware of these, but they are really beautiful machines, the gold one is amazing! i'd be on the lookout for one if you have a vintage fetish. probably not that good for big riders, but still really cool.

Wow. You're right - that is a good looking bike. Even with a bit of rust and dirt, it seems worth fixing up. Surprisingly small fold too. I think I see "Road Puppy" on the head-badge though I can't make out much more than that.

Thanks for the links!
