New Bars for the shovel

These bars were made by Eric Barnett of the famed Speed Junkie Cycle works.  Check him out!  I've also got a cool little master cylinder that'll get installed tonight as soon as I get my hands on some smaller banjo fittings.

Getting Excited

Need to finish the import, wires, oil, and Shakken....then this little kitten will be putting all over the nice curvey mountain roads of Japan....and hopefully Hokkaido by summers end.

Just can't stay away from a shovel

For christmas I decided I'd get my self a new shovel.  I have mine back in the states but it is registered as a 2009 special assembly and as such, makes it nearly impossible to get legal in Japan.

So the executive decision was made to get a facotry shovel at a reasonable price and make it cool.  Here is the before and after so far, I'd say Fab Kevin is doing a reasonable job :)

I intend to use this bike for the complete tour of Japan before my time here is complete. Hopefully no one in the Shaken office tries to hold that up...at least not for too long.

Some new stuff in the works....

Its been a while, young children have a way of keeping you off your bike.  Got a new bike coming to Japan soon but not before it gets the proper Michigan treatment.  I do belive the engine is in good hands with Dan R.  Next up Fab Kevin hard tail.  It's going to be a keeper.
