Recently we acquired a vintage late-1930s Japanese bicycle.  It was rusting away in the back of a family-friend's garage .  We took it home, cleaned it up a little bit, admired it's craftsmanship, and found it a new home with a caring collector.  The bicycle had a number of unique features that are not seen on many of todays bicycles:  fender ornament, rod brakes, wheel brushes, and a lot of Japanese writing/brand marks.  It also came with a European-made removable child seat, as well as an American headlamp.
