Mikado made bikes in Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures, Quebec, Canada and were sold exclusively in Quebec via a single La Cordée store in Montreal. The name suggests that frames were Japanese but the scant information available suggests that everything was made locally1). The Mikata brand changed names to Pelaquin in 1988 and was revived in 1996 when the name was resold to Procycle. info
The bicycles, coming only from a single shop, are very rare and no truly reliable examples with dates and provenance have been found.
