What about Sekine bicycles? How about everything!
This project grew from a desire to learn about the company- who they were, how they started. When I couldn't easily find accurate information, I had to start digging. The more I found, the more I wanted to know. What about this bike, or this model? Why do they have different head badges? So many questions, so few answers. So far, I've discovered a lot of interesting information, and I'd like to know even more. Eventually, I dream of condensing the information I've found and publishing a small zine; whose photocopied pages will be found, tattered and grease-stained, in bike co-ops and workshops across the land.
I've never owned one and only ridden a few, but I've come to appreciate these bikes everywhere I see them. I'm the weird bike nerd who stops you on the street to talk about your old Sekine. I'm not crazy, I'm just doing some research. Mind if I take a photo for the record?
Do you have a Sekine? Did you work for them? Racee one of their bikes? Have an old photo or story to tell? Do you ride one to work and treat it badly? Post a comment, or send your photos and stories to share.
