This bike was made by a frame builder named Honjo who has nothing to do with the mudguard maker. The site owner is in Kyoto where I was born and brought up. His another hobby seems photography and you can see many photos of places where I used to do cycling .
    I have just found very good photos of details of a Toei which seems newly built. http://homepage2.nifty.com/merckx/index.html The old man you can see on the first photo is the builder of Toei.
