This image from the magazine, "To the Stars", shows Shinzo Morita of Osaka, Japan with a Shaw bicycle that was manufactured in Galesburg, Kansas. The Shaw company was founded in 1903 by Stanley W. Shaw, who manufactured and marketed bicycles, motors, sports cars, tractorized automobiles, and garden tractors. In 1903, the company converted an ordinary bicycle into a motorcycle and started the production of a one cylinder bicycle engine. Within a few years, the Shaw company was selling their motorcycle all over the world.
