Wow. Very cool Melvin. Those Panasonics are very handsome machines, nice alternative to the normal Columbus tubed Euro offerings.
Did all the PR-6000s come with number tabs?
They are handsome machines, John. Thanks. I do like the design of the paintscheme a lot. You can still select it for your custom Panasonic and it still looks good >>

Yes, also the PR-6000 for the paying customer came with number tab, as the example Speedbicycles recently auctioned demonstrates >>
The PR-6000 for the paying customer was silver brazed by a Panasonic's small 'Works Team'. It entirely uses unique high quality frame parts. The paying customer had to bring 6998 guilders with him. Perhaps Panasonic thought it was psychologically smart to set the price 2 guilders under 7K, so it was perceived as somewhat cheaper. Personally I think it doesn't make much sense with a 7K bike
