someone's 35th anniversary...


shinya couldn't stand the narrow tyre he got last week. it was too narrow and looked unbalanced as a whole. so he got another one. one size down and wider but still much narrower than the one we originally had. what he has been challenging here is not to make fastest bike but to make the motorcycle he loves faster. if he knew he was going to race the spike before he built it, the spike probably would never have been born.

この前届いたタイヤが細すぎて全体のバランスが崩れたことが気になって仕方がなかった木村氏。やっぱりサイズをひとつ落としてもう少し太いのを付けることに。もちろん、ずっと付けていたタイヤよりはうんと細い。ただ速ければ良いというよりは、やっぱり自分の好きな形をしたオートバイをより速くすることを楽しんでいるのだから、こうでなくちゃね。

he likes it better. i like it, too.

これならいい。些細なことのように見えるけど、大切なこと。


the air box or bento box, shinya wanted to remake it. it was on 3rd around 10:30pm.

お弁当箱(エア・ボックス)を作り直すつもりらしい。これが6月3日の午後10時半頃。
 











 !!

he found this at swap meet or thrift store. it says "happy 35th anniversary" :D one way to put someone's anniversary gift to good use.

このアルミの壺か何かはスワップミートかスリフト・ストアで見つけたもの。「ハッピー・35th・アニバーサリー」と彫ってある。誰かの記念品、ここにしかと活かされております。

I was soooooooo worried that the Spike would no longer be the machine that it has been. ( Awesome!!!)
