Always difficult to tell from pictures online but these machines are either of a pretty decent quality.... or finely detailed by their owners... or it could just be they look good in the pics.

All in all, they look to be quite sharp!

Thanks for posting them up!

Does anyone know the difference between a Phoenix and a Fuji Phoenix. Was the Fuji Phoenix an export model? I have a blue, ladies single speed, caliper brake bike that is missing the headbadge. The Phoenix logo is on the down tube but I want to replace the missing headbadge with the correct one. Phoenix is spelled out on the chainring. Looks like it was intended for the US. (Raleigh type fork, drop-center rims etc.)
Thanks, Dan, NY

Fascinating. A Humber bicycle has turned up on Trademe.co.nz in New Zealand with a Fenghuang chainwheel. The Humber looks authentic with a humber brass head badge. The chainwheel has FENGHUANG in upper case font as part of the webbing. We assume it was fitted later.

I think you'd be safest putting a Phoenix badge on it. As long as the bird is on the downtube and in the Chainring, then it's probably a Phoenix.

I haven't heard of Fuji-Phoenix but I too have seen the badge on Ebay. My guess is that it just be intended for the Japanese market as Fuji is a term usually associated with Japan.

Another possibility is that "Fuji-Phoenix" was an attempt by Feng Huang to create a flanker brand in markets where the Japanese brand Fuji had greater brand recognition.

That's my speculation...and that's really all it is.
