Hare - Thailand Bicycle Industries, Inc

Hello,

Picked this up off of CL for $10. Only was interested in cranks, but then spent twelve hours cleaning off rust and just plain screwing with it.

Belt brake, hand grip for rear passenger, rear seat, foot pegs, hand grip reflectors. I removed the rear kickstand, proprietary bell, rusted basket.

Have been unable to find any information on this.

Unfortunately, unless it's from a big enough bike company with multinational sales, not much, if any, real information would have been published for bikes such as this one, so a lot of these bikes just simply gets lost in time.

The buzzed looking bunny on the decal looks cool!

It's obviously built for a market where they drive on the left hand side of the road, based on the light bracket on the right fork blade. Love the passenger saddle, pegs and grab rail. I guess mom couldn't scold you for riding double on this bicycle, as it was designed for it. A real conversation piece.

Mirfi, this company probably vanished a long time ago. I've been here 7+ years and never heard or seen the brand. It looks like a standard bike that is sold at a Tesco or BigC store (Walmart style) for ~$100. Nowadays the brand sold is called Turbo which has similar styled bikes. E 24? - Turbo Bicycle

Frame is solid and with the belt brake, it could handle a motor.
