The story of the vintage bike, and why it’s still going strong.
Posted in: bike,bicycle,bikes,news,bikestoday,tourism source Fox News title This vintage bike is a hit with locals and tourists in Japan article A tourist in Japan was recently inspired to buy a vintage bicycle because of its affordability and practicality.
Shoji Fujimoto, 42, bought the bicycle, which is made of the same materials used for bicycles, at a bicycle store in the northern city of Osaka.
He had been shopping for a bike since 2008 and it was the first time he’d purchased one in his life.
He told the Japan Times that the bike was easy to transport and easy to ride.
He said he could get from his home in Osaka to work in the city of Fukuoka in an hour.
The bike was a hit.
It was so popular that he decided to sell it.
Fujimoto said he has sold more than 200 of them.
“I think the people who want this bike are very special,” Fujimoto told the newspaper.
“I don’t know how they get it.”
The story of vintage bicyclesIn Japan, vintage bicycles are a very popular item.
A survey conducted in the 1970s found that a total of 1.1 million vintage bicycles were sold, and about half of them were sold for more than 50,000 yen ($5,000).
The survey also found that nearly half of Japanese people aged between 25 and 44 said they owned a vintage bike.
Fujimoto’s experience was similar.
In 2009, he bought a vintage Schwinn bicycle at a flea market in Tokyo, and he sold it for 500,000 won ($430).
“I don.t have much money now, but it’s fun to play with this bike,” Fujida said.
“It’s hard to tell people who buy them what to buy.”
The popularity of vintage bikes has also reached the United States, where they are a popular attraction for visitors.
In March, a woman from Georgia was among the first people in the country to buy one of Fujimoto’s vintage bicycles.
The bicycle was a perfect gift for her, said Fujimoto.
“She loves this bike and loves her family,” Fujima said.
“She is very special.”
