Japan Yokohama Mooneyes Show. Chicara Best Of Show.

chicaraFriend Charlie Lecach from Freeway Magazine was in Japan in Yokohama, where he attended the 18th Annual Hot Rod Custom Show organized by Mooneyes. He tells me that there was no best of show winner in the car category, as no Hot Rod or Kustom Car seemed to come close to the quality of the “Galaxian”, last year’s big winner.

But there was a best of show winner in the motorcycle category. Chicara, from the AMD Championship fame, won the prize with his 1950 Meguro bike. This Japanese brand was bought by Kawasaki in 1964 and the first Kawasakis were actually rebadged Meguros. Chicara did a fantastic job on this 30 cubic inch OHV single, adapting a Linkert M-53 carb to it and creating a one off chassis. As always, in his typical minimalist boardtrack style.

    too bad the pick was taken infront of the polished diamond plate behind it. It kind of blends into the background.

    definitively, there is big differences between american style, japanese and european. Everyone are beautifull, each in his own way. You cannot compare a blonde with a brunnete or asian girl. I love them. The bike I mean 🙂

    Very nice piece of art. I can only imitation the amount of time and expense this took to create. It would be a nice addition to anyone’s library or den.
