Look Ma, No Hands!
Hey folks.

An old Japanese bicycle was donated to the museum, and I cannot find any information on it. Has anyone encountered this badge/bicycle before?

forwarded inquiry on to an expert on Japan bicycle products who is not a member of the forum -

here is their response:

"Could be inter or post war, The Japanese didn't do a lot of product development after the war, for obvious reasons, instead using existing tooling that survived the war.

The CW brand was reportedly owned and manufactured by Yamaguchi. Note the three yellow arcs around the CW. It's actually a yellow circle with a black, captial Y (for Yamaguchi) superimposed, and then the CW logo placed over that."

hope this assists you a bit 😉
