night vision...

today we decided to just relax, reading books and old magazines at the workshop. shinya found this harley davidson ad in a 80s magazine lost in translation. the japanese word they used here is not "welcome". it's more like an authoritative "come in" in tone of command. :D

本日はのんびり読書day。前にスワップミートで見つけた70年代雑誌の中に紛れ込んでいたエイティーズの雑誌の山を引っ張り出してマジ読みを始める木村氏。で、変なハーリー・デーヴィットソンの広告を見つけた。ウェルカムのつもりが、「お入り」。 ジョン(犬)、お入り!的な。やっぱりさすがは天下のハーリー・デーヴィットソンざんすな。

all in all, we wanted to go for a ride. it was about 5 minutes to midnight and freezing cold. so we rode double on the SR500. was pretty dark but fun.

heated steel tubes...

shinya is making the handlebars for the knuckle. it's only provisional for a fitting session with the owner next week but shinya wanted to make the ideal ones.

shinya didn't like the feel of the bmw front forks so he decided to rebuild them.


use this opportunity to re-polish the front fender ;p
