According to my wife, her late father used to drive this bike for commute in Tokyo. He was a chubby man, this is a tiny bike, so I try to picture him on this bike and that brings a smile to my face. Alas, there’s no picture left of him and the bike.
She didn’t remember the color, so I went for the color I liked; transparent red on top of burnt iron for deep wine red color. I like how it came out.
