My candidates would be Maruishi and Zebrakenko. Since even Fuji gets no respect, these are really esoteric for collectors of production bikes.
Hey, production bikes get no respect. I didn't even get a rise when I "declared" Austro-Daimler the world champ.

The Zebra , while it may have the originality and condition, is akin to a nice fourdoor Dodge Coronet from that era. If it were the ragtop twodaoor in that shape, a greater find, and it it were the Superbe or DA AX Zebra, same story.
Good luck bidding, but I feel since even I'm out on this one, it may get the goose egg for bid no'
