DSC: OTORO

A few pics of this have been floating around in a semi finished state. Vintage style paint for an old school chopper / hotrod homage on a hi tech frame. Otoro means fatty tuna, and is also a nickname for a blunt in Japan (according to a friendly Shibuyan local)    

Waiting for a wheel

Keirin

The latest Rouler has a good story on Kerin racing in Japan

Worth it every time

Cycling Aoyama Dori. Middle of Saturday, no traffic, brilliant surface, beautiful weather, courteous cars. (bicycles are considered sporting equipment by most airlines and therefore counted as free baggage)

Little cycle action

Very very little cycle action happening on the streets of Tokyo. A new law preventing curbside chaining has meant no ridiculous  keirins or carbon feasts every where you look. (also ¥50,000 fine for riding brakeless) Good to see the Orginal Fake crew again.

Details

This is the ridiculous seventies-style-candy-violet-and-turquoise-over-chrome-flake-with-scales design on a ultra modern carbon and ali frame. It’s a bit of an homage to the hotrod & custom show I’m attending.

Start right, build up

If this is a scene in your hotel room 5 minutes after check in, you know you’ll enjoy your stay.
