Mooneyes Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show

Today December 4th, at Pacifico Yokohama, Japan all custom bikes and hot rods are setup for the 19th edition of this more than ever popular one-day show on Sunday. Until then, get together parties organized by Dice Magazine and Bean Bandits are going on…

About 100 guests are coming from outside Japan, and belonging to the US delegation, Cole Foster with his 36 Metallicoupe, Falcon Motorcycles with the Krestel Triumph, Duane Ballard with his “Funkestein” & “Pink Tako” Honda CB’s Choppers, Jeff Decker with his 52 Vincent Lightning, and Mark Drew with his just completed 57 Triumph named “Solitary Conginment”.

It is Mark’s bike first outing and it may be the revelation of this year Mooneyes show. The pictures you see were taken at the time the bike was loaded in a container for the almost 3 weeks trip from the US to Yokohama (Images @ Half Moon Garage and @ Nostalgia on Wheels). This zen looking Triumph use bicycle type wheels, peashooter forks. The “half of a peanut” gas tank, primary covers and mounts are done in transparent Lucite material…Can’t wait to see better pictures and read the full tech sheet of this bike. To follow..

    One of the coolest gas tanks ever, albeit a tad small.

    Holy crap is that a lot of chrome, I cannot fathom the amount of time that went into making that. Wow.

    Hey brethren , It looks like an anorexic speedway racer from Mars. I like it. The designer is definitely in his ” less is more ” phase . Always refreshing to see a bike and designer that makes you think, ” What th” ” I aint never seen anything like that. Every passing day it becomes more difficult to break the mold , to expand and reach new horizons, to boldly go where no man has gone before. See what I mean? you can’t even wax poetic without plagerizing a starship captain. Congratulations Mark on a build that moves the sticks. Awesome. imag-n-glide.
