Like I always said, the 'Flying Pigeon' blog is my source of inspiration. I have been following it without fail. The author is good at details and as such, I have gained a new insight into collecting and hopefully one day, built my complete antique/retro/classic bicycle. It might not be a 'Flying Pigeon' brand but as long as the parts a 'antique', that's fine with me.
Got this 'Koba' brand from a local bicycle dealer. Told me it's made in Japan. Cost me quite a sum, comparing to the other makes of side stands available in the market. But I loved it. Not because it's Japanese but the make is very solid. The chrome. The weight. Real 'old-skool' stuff. soild and heavy as hell...keke..
