Heck, I've just been trying to find any information on these small wheeled traditional diamond frame bikes and can't turn up anything english (or even engrish for that matter!). I fouind this on the web - see second and third picture of the silver bike. Is is a Toei ? That's the only english word in the title..

Hi Peter,

Bikes shown could be TOEI's but the copy lines said THE BAG SPECIFICATION FO R TOEI (TYPE?) SUPPO®T/CARRIER.

This site is setup for a leather craftman who said "It cannot reply to an English e-mail."

The site is title as "KURAFUTO KOBOU" means "Craft Workshop"

HIs name is Yoichi Bishikawa, from Chiba prefecture, in Japan (out east of Tokyo), he also craft Japanese rice paper and metal.

Is this guy, once recommended by one of our CR member, Dennis Young in Japan ?

Have a great day"
