Your Panasonic collection is amazing! Especially this titanium. Are you familiar with the NJS frames at all? I just aquired one and I'm trying to figure out its year of manufacture.

Thanks. Finding them requires lots of patience and hunting normally. Running PanasonicBikeMuseum.info web site also puts me in touch with a number of unique Panasonic bicycle owners as well. I get people trying to sell me bikes on a weekly basis it seems. ;-)

Actually, one nice thing about collecting Panasonics is that they don't cost as much as classic Italian steel etc. As long as they don't have NJS stamped on them somewhere they are usually pretty affordable.
