Hi Chris and CR List, In response to Chris Beyer's question requesting information on Tsunoda....I had a mid 80's badged "WINDSOR" made in Japan by Tsunoda. A LBS had an identical bicycle to mine badged ''LOTUS'' made in Japan with the Tsunoda decal. In all respects the same bicycle except the names were changed on the decals on seat and head tube.Quality was OK, nothing special, sort of reminded me of an average, C. ITOH bicycle. It made me wonder if TSUNODA had bought out the name right of the old, made in Mexico WINDSOR'S( which were Cinelli clones). Yours truly, Martin Walsh in Vienna,Va
