" Zebrakenko was a Japanese brand that goes back to the turn of the century (20th) but only started US distribution in the mid 1970s. They offered a wide range of models, from entry level to high end. There was even a nice Dura Ace 10 equipped track bicycle. The early models were typical Japanese bicycles: clean workmanship, very sturdy, capable components, but having a "dead" ride quality relative to the resiliency of most European bicycles. Depending on the year and/or model you could find them equipped with either Shimano or SunTour based groups. The head badge was quite nice, with an oval with a roaring lion's head in the centre, a crown over the lion's head and 'GOLDENSPORTS GS ZEBRAKENKO'. The brand seems to have disappeared in the mid-1980s, about the same time that the Zebra brand appeared. I have always wondered if they just shortened the name, but the distributors were different, so it may just be a co-incidence." from Vintage Bike Discussions
