Comment from the person in charge of the manufacturer
「This vintage light was designed with the image of a retro bicycle light that is rarely seen nowadays.
The assembly process of each part is all manual work by craftsmen. This time, there were two particularly difficult points.
The first is the stainless steel frame that surrounds the light body. You need to manually bend the stainless steel frame 12 times to get this structure.」
「The other point is the front ring. The contact point between the main body and the ring must be adjusted by a craftsman to prevent water from entering the inside.
Due to these circumstances, the number of vintage lights produced is limited. I would like you to take this opportunity to get it and combine it with your car.」
