1980's Panasonic NJS trackbike #2. Sold.

Couple weeks ago i picked up this Panasonic NJS trackbike. Almost complete NJS build. Frame is a custom FPC-02 order frame NJS certified. . Mr. Konosuke Matsushita was the man behind the National/Panasonic company. As a child he was adopted into a family who owned a bicycle shop. He passion for bicycles began at an early age and before long he was creating new innovations for the benefit of the cycling world. In Japan, Mr. Matsushita’s company was known as National. This presented problems when looking to sell products in other countries such as the USA, so the name Panasonic came about for use on exported products. Mr. Matsushita was always passionate about his bicycles and he refused to put his name on something he considered to be less than a quality product. Perhaps this would explain why even the inexpensive low-end models such as the Sport 500 seemed to be so much nicer than the boat anchor department store bikes being sold at the time. Matsushita was also known for his Panaracer brand bicycle tires. He created the first successful synthetic tubular tires and Panasonic tubular cement is also highly regarded. 62cm center center 63,5cm center top 57,5cm top tube
