With all due respect, I hope that this is one that you DON'T chop, even 'tho Shinya is one of the best there is..

Davidabl2 said...

...I think it's got plenty of "WabiSabi" already, like an
old pine tree or something. I hope Shinya just rides it
until he's nearly as old as it is today!

occhiolungo: yes.

Davidabl: no worry. shinya is not going to and never will chop around historical treasures. he's going to take to the cannonball :)

Davidabl2: when he did 1914 excelsior, he only got the motor in his hand. he didn't chop or cut anything original. instead, he created himself out of something that he could get or reused something that he could find. shinya LOVES motorcycles more than anything and has respect for each of them. HE WILL NOT CHOP HISTORY.

Is that a tool box mounted on top of the gas tank? If so no wonder Shinya had to buy this bike. Two of his all time favorites, together!

Knowing that it was like his grangfather's bike is a great thing--maybe Shinya will still ride it when he's an old graybeard himself :-) Like the Indian is :-)

menacing ayu said...

Davidabl: shinya will get gray beard pretty soon...
