odd socks...

after some tuning, test riding "Flash", the Ducati in the canyon.


back to the shop and, at just a right time, received a pair of new tyres for "Silver Wasp".

strike a balance...

after shinya finished up making an additional trophy, he turned on the F4 to make sure it was running and then...


decided to take a little break :D


 back to work on the F4.


 need to work on just a little bitty more details.


one more trophy...

mamma mia!


one more People's Choice award plaque was added for 2016 Deus BBO Tokyo. "whether big or small, i made them wholeheartedly!" shinya said.

go on a walk...

with some help from our neighbors, we were pushing out Wata's project Nova from #12 to the back street. Wata needs to bring this one to the local sandblasting place two blocks away.


shinya gave eye rolling when he heard that Wata was going to borrow a trailer from a neighbor to haul this Nova. 


though it doesn't have front wheels, it got caster wheels in front plus it's empty so we can easily push or pull by a manpower like this. we call it Azusa way.


Wata who's not yet fully used to Azusan way, hurriedly brought his El Camino and decided to use a machine power.


after a while, we dropped off the Nova alright.

beyond the camera shot...

the 1974 Ducati750 "Flash"that shinya built in 2008-2009 is also back for a tune-up.


 go for a test riding.


and then pedaling to a nearby gas station to get some gasoline...


 for the F4!


and it's running! this is not a video but you would probably hear it if you close your eyes and strain to hear ;p 

そしてエンジン掛かった。動画ではないけれど、目を閉じて耳を澄ますと何だか聞こえてくるような・・・ 嬉し過ぎて動画撮り忘れただけ
