It would have been decorated with cold from the world around me or not it does not come tomorrow in the only mistake “parts” and “flop”.
This time, will focus on the bike that Kyabuton RTS, but for origin of the cab ton muffler, and a little description.
■Origin of the cab ton muffler
Koshiro Nakagawa store in Osaka Prefecture, imported and sold in the UK of Ariel, was Kansai total distributor. However, it was know no longer not enter the product to Japan by the Great Depression of 1929.
This is regrettable! Business go bankrupt or at Honma!
This So, in there was Ariel type Japanese-made vehicle on hand, this also has coalesced the 350cc side valve engine of the Indian that was at hand. This is so splendidly first car in 1933, becomes the trigger was completed.
So, Kyabuton is not the shape of the muffler, we manufacturer name.
Koshiro Nakagawa store is now later sell the bike as Kyabuton car sales.
This Kyabuton says whether it was how much of the bike manufacturers, I think that many people know, but it is well-known brand on a par with “Meguro”, “Rikuo”.
Such Kyabuton is an acronym for “Come And Buy To Osaka Nakagawa” CABTON.
When the Japanese translation, Ya come to buy up to Koshiro Nakagawa shops of Osaka! It is ask! And it makes you smile
■Koshiro Nakagawa store’s management Mr. Shoichi Naito
By the way, Mr Shoichi’s management Naito at that time. Nakagawa’s a do not. Is unknown tried a little investigated said Koshiro Nakagawa.
This Mr Shoichi Naito The great thing is, in order to create a better quality bike, the person in the rented house dwelling, Toka invested most of the revenue to the purchase of the latest machine tools.
■Kyabuton is later bankruptcy
Such Kyabuton is now several times markdown sales a year. Although it’s good, it dropped the quality of parts, failure is frequent. The result it is the loss of trust in the cause at once. And try to regain that trust, but we have provided a wide range of vehicle lineup, bankruptcy in 1955. In fact Kyabuton is, limited company Mizuho auto sales are also sold, after Kyabuton bankruptcy is a finite company Mizuho car sales, but had continued to manufacture for the cab ton fan, I have finished all of the production in 1958.
