"Timeless American" by Eddie Lee book launch...

now shinya's focusing on the project R, Kawasaki Z1.


in the late afternoon. came to Deus Ex Machina in Venice. distance was no problem but the traffic was too harsh on our 1915 Indian in between Azusa and the city so we hauled it in the van to the city, unloaded in the city and shinya rode it all the way to Venice. so happy that it still runs great after a 3,000+ journey :)


the reason why we brought our dead tired Indian here was to celebrate the book launch for "Timeless American ~ a selection of pre-1916 Motorcycles" by Eddie Lee. congrats, Eddie! many of our fellow Cannonballer Urban Hirsch's collections are in the book.

なぜ疲れているインディアンを持ち出してヴェニスまで来たかと言うと、1916年以前のアメリカ製のモーターサイクルだけを集めた、今までありそうでなかった本「タイムレス・アメリカン」by Eddie Lees氏の出版記念の集まりがあると聞いたから。後姿の紳士は1回目のキャノンボールで一緒だった勝手に江戸っ子と呼んでいるUH氏。江戸っ子のコレクションがこの本の中にたくさん掲載されている。

and Urban brought some of them to display at Deus. 1907 Indian tri-car.


 1915 Harley-Davidson side-car.

 1914 Harley-Davidson single

 Deus MV Agusta Brutale "AgoTT" by Woolie.
