Welcome to the Panasonic Bicycles Virtual Museum (PBVM). This web site is in no way associated with Panasonic Bicycles Japan. This site was created by a Panasonic bicycle collector, Darin Nederhoff, from the Minneapolis, Minnesota area.
The idea for this site came about out of Darin’s frustration when trying to locate information about Panasonic bicycles elsewhere on the web. It seemed as if every other brand of bicycle had some sort of site or registry dedicated to it. Why did Panasonic have only one or two mentions elsewhere? It was time to do something about that!
The purpose of this site is simple. We wish to preserve a photographic history and information pertaining to Panasonic’s bicycle production and sales and have become a resource for owners, collectors, and restorers of Panasonic bicycles from around the world. We invite to to create an account and join us.
ATTENTION Non-USA Residents! We are in need of your old Panasonic Bicycles catalogs from any year you don’t see documented on our site. Please contact us if you have some you can scan or loan to us for scanning.
