AHRMA or bust!

Finally got my rims laced and true with stainless steel spokes. WM2 and WM3 Shouldered Aluminum rims. Now I need to get my drums turned and shoes arced... And by the looks of these pictures I need new sprockets. Hopefully someone makes a 520 conversion.

AHRMA in April or bust!

Sunday Nostalgia

A few series i followed as a little kid. I think they played a huge part in my life as far as what i find interesting.
This first one is an all time favorite intro. Quentin Tarantino actually used the dialog in Kill bill. Pretty cool that he even went on and used Sonny Chiba (the main actor playing Jubei Yagyu) in his movies.
In in Kage no Gundan -Shadow warriors, Sonny Chiba also acted as Hattori Hanzo. Same basic role as in Kill Bill. Even the commercial lead in was bitchin. I need to get this series from my brother. Trav?

A few post ago I spoke of Kikaida... with a greater liking for Hakaida here is why.
Watch and enjoy, you wont be disappointed

Inspiration LA

A nice Saturday afternoon at the Santa Monica Airport. Inspiration LA was such a neat idea. In a sense it was refreshing to see all the vintage maniacs and the interest everyone had there. Oscar by Alpinestars had Roger DeCosters motorbike displayed along with Kenny Roberts race suit(Does it get any better?). Also, the craftsmen who were there making quality goods on site was awe inspiring. Good to see perfect examples of what seems like a long lost craft in America.
Here are some pictures. Enjoy.
