    The logo looks like it says Yoshimura. There’s a modern company with a very similar logo. yoshimuracycling.com/pages/faqs – Weiwen Ng Jul 17 '20 at 12:53

    @DanielRHicks Shimano introduced their V-brakes in '96. It might also have been a later upgrade. The frame has old-fashioned quill stems. Those dissappeard from quality mountain bikes also in the mid 90s. (Road bikes were later 96' (Pinarello) and 98' quill stems (Trek), '97 threadless (Pinarello). – gschenk Jul 17 '20 at 13:54

    Antonius, let us know a bit more about the bike, if you please? Let's sumarize what we see here: 6-speed Shimano indexed derailleur. Shift levers on the bars. That indicates Rust on rear triangle has been oversprayed, bike has not been moved since (still paint on the cogs). Brake tracks worn, must have been actually ridden. Aluminium platform pedals that are certainly newer than rest. With that amount of rust, the bike is not worth fixing. – gschenk Jul 17 '20 at 14:08
  • @WeiwenNg, correct, the logo is Yoshimura, but when i search on google, i haven't got any information about Yoshimura company making a bicycle. Or perhaps, i search it wrong? – Antonius Julio Falian Jul 17 '20 at 14:28
