PIRELLI November 1997
Possibly the best advertisement I have ever seen in a motorcycle magazine featuring one of my favourite bike stylings of all time.

I’m so stoked. I was at Keisuke’s place the other night with Nick before we uhh tested his AE86 a bit. I was rummaging through his pile of Japanese magazines and found an old issue of Autoworks, a ‘Retro Car Special Edition’ and what did I find inside? More photos from my favourite car meet! There are always those cars, you know the ones, that are so awesome yet you can only find scraps of information and images of them. This meet is one of my favourites because so many good cars were in one place, most of which are hard to find pictures of. I posted about it here, here and here. The guys up front holding and raising hands? Total sunny bros.
There are too many good cars to post at once so I’ll spread a few of the captures over a couple of posts. This Sanitora gets first mention for being high in my favourites and if you look at the top photo you will see the Hayashi Street B210 Sedan too!
I came across a bunch of scans off the Doriten blog and I couldn’t help but chuckle at this. There are a few interesting drift oddities in Japan but this has got to be up there with the best. A Nissan Pao with a SR20DET slammed into the firewall… looks like it does pretty well! I shot the Fieldzeye Pao in Japan and that was pretty cool in itself but this is completely different.

Another rad G-Works scan from the Fly Rat blog. Issue 2, 2010. Cheers guys. Click for larger.
Silver with light covers, factory stacked pipes and Watanabes. So clean.

I thought this was interesting, although I do wish they had done the size comparisons without over fenders. The scans are from issue 4, 2010 of G-Works magazine and were scanned by the FlyRat team. Cheers guys. Follow the link to see a scan of the black Zed with 17′s.

Ian has kindly sent me some large scans of the AY12 tech drawing from the Autotechnic issue he got his hands on. Cheers Ian. I think if I had unlimited funds, a KB110 with an AY12 would be the power plant of choice. Oldschool tech at it’s best. Note the 90* banked distributor, the inverted oil filter and tall sump.
After the jump is a design drawing of an AZ12 which I haven’t seen before. A LZ head on an A series. The LZ head was a twin cam cross flow head originally designed for the L-series. Coool. Read the rest of this entry »
