japanese girl with big katana.

kuniyoshi, 'nikko danjo'

wicked little sporty, ironhead with standard frame, bolt-on hardtail, drum brake, shorty forks, bates headlight, nice pipes and luftwaffe grey paintwork, really smart, bet it's japanese.

jess, my daughter, is doing a project in art and design at school based on a mexican coffee shop, she has been researching popular mexican imagery and one of the most prolific is the 'day of the dead' festival where the spirit of loved one's is remembered, she found this cool image and sent me a copy.

i found this disc in a charity shop in derby, i always look through the books to see if i can find any obscure karate/bike/hotrod books and i very rarely look through the cd rack as, from bitter experience, they are always full of dross because the totally anal record collecting bastards, who go around all the charity shops every day beat me to it and then i uncovered this little gem, to be honest, i paid the 50p for the cover alone, when i got it home i dropped it on in the shed and was delighted to find swedish punk/metal making my day, you know your'e onto a winner when the tracklisting contains 'motorpsycho', blown to bits', 'petroleum', 'zippo queen' and crackhouse bonanza', recommended.

'britains' sprinter, don't know what bike it's based on but looks like the 'mighty mouse' vincent engined drag bike, lovely little thing.
