I have a ('83?) Lotus Eclair in my possession right now and it's a well thought out tourer. Angles are slack, outfitted with the then, new, complete Deore gruppo and very nice front and rear racks that also came stock. Tubes are Tange, butted, Mangaloy(?- not sure of the spelling). 27" wheels might be the only rub.
Not familiar with Panasonic's in general, but from what I've read, folks love their Lotus's. Which, incidentally, was a U.S. designed bike made in China with limited distributorship. Do a web search and you'll find out quite a bit.
