on strange occasions...

shinya found honda XL100 (SL100)
on saturday.

これ見つけて、買ってしまった木村氏。

 he's so happy.

he saw fully customized XL100 when he was 16
and has been a big fan of it since then.
now he got this not running condition bike
and says will restore it. will see...

上野のバイク街で部品を探している時に、
とある部品屋さんにいた常連客のおじさんに連れられて
見せてもらったのが、SLのチョッパー。
木村氏当時16歳。 そのバイクが凄くカッコよかったそう。
後にその常連客のおじさんというのが、
地獄商会のHさんだったことが判明。
ちっともおじさんじゃなく、当時20だったんだってさ、Hさん!

Shinya-

Is the tool kit still underseat?
Maybe you can design a tool box for this bike?
Those bikes makes everybody smile...
