The 1991 catalogue was already up. View it here.

Now here is the 1993 catalogue =>



Next page explaines the top of the line MTB, Hybrid and Road models are made by the Panasonic works team. Tubing is heat treated to gain strength (x 1.3). As HT tubing will loose some of it properties when welded or brazed at high temperatures, Panasonic opted for low temperature silver brazing.




I like the 1992 MC-Team better, because it has a rigid fork and lacks a Zoom stem. Great stem, but on a back then over 7.000 guilders costing rig???

Next page shows the full rigid ( 8) ) MC-Cat and the MC-Pro DH. The MC-Cat frame is made by the works team too, using Tange Prestige tubing silver brazed together. The MC-Pro DH is actually a quite funny bike for todays standards. Downhill bike with 1" travel forks?

Next two pages show the PR-6000 roadbike, the model that was used by the Panasonic racing team in the early '90s. I recently got my hands on one. It is currently in pieces for a major overhaul, but soon it will be put back together into a bike I will probably ride a lot. Will post pics when finished. Keep an eye on the roadsection.
