what is DP-356

Just a guess, but maybe a dealership had these made to identify which keys went to which bike in inventory?    ???

it might have been red (to match tank, etc.) in the day. Red plastic tends to fade to this kind of pink when exposed to UV and humidity.

It's from a company that produces promotional bits 'n' pieces such as key rings, labels, pens etc with a manufactures logo on.

DP-356 seems to be their code for 'Bridgestone Motorcycles', not available today, I've checked.

Yes, they are listed on Yahoo Japan with a "buy it now" of $17 ea.

The big problem is that most sellers on this site will only sell to buyers with a Japanese address. One can get around that by signing up with businesses that act as 3rd party buyers but with the fees they charge and the double shipping charges (you pay for seller to warehouse and then warehouse to you), items can get expensive real fast. Maybe someone like Kotaro could contact the seller and put together a deal to supply these here or on eBay?

Here are the links to the clocks....

Do you have an account with them? You have to sign up on the site just like eBay. The signing up part is easy. The hard part is trying to buy anything and these are some of problems you'll face once you get to that part.

1. They don't accept PayPal.
2. You will have to open a bank account with one of the banking institutions that's actually in Japan. Not an easy thing to do.
3. And finally, you will still hit the big deadend in that most of the sellers will not ship internationally.

When I tried to buy something a year ago, I gave up and had a member of the Datsun 240Z forum who lives in Japan and came to my aid, act as my middleman.

So there's kinda only 2 options available...... either have someone you know that lives there and is willing to help you out or sign up with one of the companies that act as middlemen and pile on the fees.  It can be done, it's just a matter of how bad you want something.  ;D

Just checked out this sellers other auctions and it's obvious producing this type clock is a business for him.

I think if there's enough interest on the site and members were willing to put up a downpayment like was done with the clutch plates & con-rod projects, maybe Kataro if contacted and interested, could put together a deal with the seller and make these available.

Here's the sellers other auctions (7 pages worth!)...
