the seasonal event...

on the way to vegas. it was freezing in the morning at high altitude and in the desert. and our van has no heater as you can tell by shinya's expression. it was like 250 miles in a freezer.



at bonhams auction venue. one of our favorite movies is "bullitt" and this was its costume.


 1961 triumph TR5C customized by Von Dutch.

ヴォン・ダッチがカスタムした 1961 トライアンフ TR5C。


Paul d'Orleans of the vintagent, Allan of revival cycles, artist Conrad Leach and shinya... another reason for coming to the auction is to meet up with good friends.

奥からthe vintagentのポール・ドーリンス氏、リバイバル サイクルズのアラン氏、画家コンラッド・リーチ氏、木村氏。会場で好きな友人達に会えるのも楽しみのひとつ。

shinya, the motorcycle cannonball promoter Lonnie Izam, and fellow cannonballer Jim Petty. the cannonball reunion!



no, our van doesn't belong to any tidy places especially resort areas. but at least shinya adds some water with elegance.


meet up with the owner of the sepia (knucklehead build by shinya in 2008) and his buddy at the auction and receive the sepia at the parking lot becomes our annual event now.


instead of letting the sepia hole up in the owner's garage due to the snow, we take it to our workshop, check up on the bike and ride it during the winter in sunny azusa.
