    Wish I could find a C. Itoh. There was a shop here in Phoenix that sold them in the very early ’70′s for “$62.50 in a box”. They were as cheaply made as the times allowed but were still way ahead of AMF and Huffies of the day.

    A friend of mine bought one and we commuted together at times. He beat me in a downhill rolling contest with my Sports Tourer.

    Don’t know if I’ll ever see another C. Itoh . Nice thing about them is that the thrift stores never heard of them so if they have one they will sell for about $30 while a Schwinn , Raleigh , or Fuji will be priced at $149 which if lasts until a holiday sells for 50% off or $75.

    I have a C.Itoh on the way. (my first) I am paying 20.00 for it. It is in rough shape but I could not resist. The bike has been dragged around by the original owner for years. Until finally he left it outside last summer, where it has remained since. The first order of business will be “cutting-off the chain”. I have a feeling this too will be a “break-even if I`m lucky ” restoration.
