mystery man's secret project...


a gentleman came in and said he had a project and needed shinya's help and started to draw something on the floor before shinya could respond to it.

こちらのジェントルマンが突然やって来て、自分のプロジェクトを手伝ってほしいと木村氏に迫る。木村氏が何かを言う前にそのプロジェクトの説明をいきなり床に描き始める。ガクブル。
 
shinya told him that he has his own projects and no time right now and the gentleman was bummed a bit but then he found spike and got so excited. "is this for land speed racing? in 1973 i got 201 mph on triumph dual engine streamliner and i believe my record is still there!"

木村氏が今は自分のプロジェクトでいっぱいいっぱいだから、ごめんなさい、と言うと少しがっかりするジェントルマン。が、スパイクを見つけて大興奮する。「ほう、ランドスピード・レーサーじゃな、これは!ワシは1973年にトライアンフのエンジンを2機積んだストリームライナーで201マイルを出して、そのレコードは今ものこっておるはずじゃ。」と言うではありませんか。

so shinya couldn't say no to him anymore. his project was to put honda mopet motor on a bicycle and wanted to keep the pedal so that it still remains as a bicycle. he wanted shinya to make some parts for it. "i bet you can do it!" he said.

仕方がないので説明を聞く。自転車にカブのエンジンを積みたいらしい。ペダルを付けたままなら自転車だから登録もヘルメットも不要。そして、それに必要なパーツを作ってほしいとのこと。「あんたなら出来るじゃろ!」
 
since our workshop was really hot and felt sorry for him to wait so shinya told him that he would make the parts and deliver it to him later today and asked his address. then the gentleman K said "that's impossible because i live in a mobile dwelling, i'll come back at 5!" and he left :)

暑い中待たせるのも悪いので、「パーツが出来たら届けるから住所を教えてください。」と木村氏が言うと、「それは無理じゃ。ワシの家は移動式だからな。5時に取りに来る」と言い残して上機嫌で去って行ったのでした。
