Thought this was funny. His how to videos are hilarious. If you love cafe racers you me get offended also if you live in Portland.

He's hilarious, I watch his videos as soon as he posts them.

I'm thinking about sending him some old parts for his bad ass build. Is like one of his t-shirts too. His videos crack me up.

I've long forgotten where I saw this, but once I found a link to a forum where Ichiban Moto had just started posting one of his in progress builds. It took a good three or four pages for the guys to realize what was going on, pretty funnyand everyone got a good laugh out of it.
