Much to do! I just completed a physical relocation to the Minneapolis, Minnesota area and have been very busy trying to get all my “offline” tasks settled and in order. I have a small mountain of emails to tend to from site visitors and I’m slowly but surely getting through them. I have more bikes to add to the web site once I get some free time as well. Stay tuned, there will be more to come!

We just moved to a new web server. Our old server was often tediously slow so we have relocated to a new host in order to better handle the load and allow for future updates. We’ll have some new content coming to the site in the near future plus some new videos on the YouTube channel. Happy riding!

While we can’t exactly brag about high production value, we have just launched a Panasonic Bicycles Virtual Museum channel over on YouTube. Our first three videos show quick overviews of the 1983 AR-6000, 1985 Team and 1988 DX-4000. We’ll likely work on a more professional and complete video for each in the not-so-distant future. We’re also open to ideas on other things you’d like to see on our YouTube channel.

If you are a member of our Panasonic Google Group you’ll know that I periodically post a list of the Panasonic bikes I find for sale from around the country/world on Craigslist and ebay. Many have asked how I find them (hint: huge RSS feed list) and now I have added a box to the bottom left corner of the site that will give readers access to my personal picks from both Craigslist and eBay.
