I’m certainly not a walking encyclopedia when it comes to vintage Panasonic bicycles. While I do have some recollection of many models in the 80’s, I do have to turn to others to help me fill in the blanks from time to time.

I would like to thank the following individuals for providing me with information or photos.

Other Photos
Random images on this web site were spotted on ebay and/or Craigslist. We make every effort to email the owner and ask for permission prior to posting photos, but with that said there are a few bicycle photos on this web site from my personal web photo archives and I have no idea who the owner is. In the event you see your bike on this site and would like to be named within the photo credits or have your photos removed you can email [email protected] . We do hope there is no objection to the use of a few random images for historical/informational purposes.
