Model General Information
The Team America model was offered in the U.S. between 1985 and 1987.  The paint scheme and part group varied from year to year. So what was the Team America? In a nutshell? It is a Japanese bike built with Italian Columbus SL tubing and named the Team America. How about that for a mind bender?

Mr Konosuke Matsushita, founder of National/Panasonic, was an adoptee into a family who operated a bicycle shop. His first product was a socket which would accept two light bulbs screwed into one light fixture. From there he built an empire of electric, electronic, banking, appliances and of course bicycles and bicycle tires. He was passionate about cycles and cycling.
