Panasonic Custom Order Titanium Road and Endurance Frames

Panasonic makes a variety of made to order frames and bicycles right here in Osaka Japan. Everything from  NJS approved Track bicycles to Titanium road bicycles. For Titanium Road Frames the lead time on frames is roughly one month and the initial deposit of 250,000 JPY is the first step in ordering.

The frames are all made right here in Osaka at Panasonic’s factory.  First you must select which model, size and, finish you’d like. Then, once those have been determined, the final cost of the frame can be determined. Once the frame has been completed and is ready for shipment, the outstanding balance can be paid and the frame (plus any parts) can be shipped.

There are a few options as far as titanium road bikes are concerned.

This is the top model FRT09 (from 407,000 JPY) that can be built ready for Di2 or cable shifting. It is available with either a chunky down tube (version H):
