Did anyone bother to navigate through the website which was linked on the earlier posting about a possible small-wheeled Toei bicycle sighting?

If you have some time for a leisurely ramble, do check out the website. I believe it may be a catalogue for a Japanese leathercrafter who does beautiful... no make that AMAZING work.

How about a set of custom leather Campy hoods or hand stitched leather Mafac half-hoods, perhaps a leather bottle cage inner sleeve to pamper your alloy bottle, and of course numerous classic styled handlebar bags in the most beautiful leather you will ever see.

You can also buy R.Herse handlebar bag holder replicas and copies of his straddle wire pulley hangers and even classic fender mount rear light/reflector units. Or perhaps you'd like custom some designed polished alloy chainrings to fit your Stronglight 49D crankset?

Here is the link to the home page. Go ahead, I dare you...

I did not look for prices on these items, but, you know the saying; "If you have to ask the price..."
