National Bikes?

Q: I have an old National (Matshushita) (1970+/-) that I can not find any information about. Is this site for that subject too?

A: Yes, you are indeed in the right place. Matshushita, National and Panasonic were all brands used on the bicycles over the years. Here in the USA, Panasonic was the name used while overseas in the home market they were often called National or Matshushita. You’re likely not finding much info on them here in America because to my knowledge, we only received bicycles under the Panasonic label. Your bicycle, therefore, may have been brought over from Japan or elsewhere by someone.
