Mitsubishi Silver Pigeon
Following WWII, wartime industries underwent a new change. Most aircraft manufacturers began producing scooters, and this brought on the first two-wheeler boom in Japan. This scooter, the Silver Pigeon (a symbol of peace), was largely made of warplane wheels and discarded warplane parts. It eventually shared popularity with Fuji Heavy Industries' Rabbit scooter.
