“THERE ARE MANY WAYS A MAN CAN EXPRESS HIMSELF BUT THERE ARE NOT MANY THINGS I CAN DO. I HAVE FOUND SOMETHING ON WHICH I WILL POUR MY LIFE. I DO NOT KNOW IF I WILL MAKE IT TO THE END OF THE ROAD SO ALL I CAN DO IS RIDE TOWARD THAT PLACE. A MAN SHOULD TAKE PRIDE IN HIS WORK AND MY WORK GIVES ME CONFIDENCE. HAVING THE COURAGE TO STAND UP AND FACE MY DREAM IS THE ONLY WAY TO CAPTURE IT.”

That’s some pretty deep shit. All I know is I lovethese bikes from Chicara Motorcycles Japan. Stunning works or art which deserve to be ridden but will most likely hardly ever touch the road apart from on photo shoots. This first bike, the Chicara Classic Racer is built around a 1950 Japanese built, 500cc Meguro Racing Motor.
