I hope you've got a good close up function on your camera, rchrd. Those cute sounding penguins don't exist till we see pics of 'em..... (please!)
Here ya go
There's the same penguin on the crank axle along with "SMC" and "Japan". I'm going to post a thread about the bike I got them with because I'm not sure what it is, it'll be up soon.
Did we ever come to any conclusions about these little penguins?
'Cos I got me another set
Well, I only have the one penguin, because his friend has been lost in the patina:
They're from my ?1950s? Repco, a hard rubbish find which I'm documenting over here
