Black & White TW200

With my old Nikon FE2, I snapped these pics while trying to use up the last few frames from a roll of 24 exposures.  That's right, a roll of film was used to shoot these. Black & white looks better on silver bromide.

The NitroHeads drag pipe is murder on my ears.  So last night I installed the much needed baffle, which was actually quite simple.  You just slide it in the pipe, line it up with the predrilled hole (didn't see that at first) and bolt it in place.  It's still loud as hell, but much more tolerable.

Also, I ordered this wicked patch for my jacket today.

That's fuckin' right.

A little test fitting...

So my first load of parts showed up today. Everything looks good. I couldn't resist throwing a few of the pieces on just to see how they fit and look.....and sound. XD

My parts shipped!!!

So after a month of waiting, my parts finally shipped from Japan.  Here is a breakdown of what is on the way so far.

Beams long swing arm. I'm not 100% sure I will use this one or not. It is the 200mm version, which might be too long for the look I am going for. We'll see.  I might need to take it back to the 150mm swing arm.

So to go along with this project, I decided it needed a name and a logo. Obviously, I thought of this before the launch of this blog, and this is really how "Osaka Custom Style" was born.  Osaka is a great city, and if I could live in Japan, I would likely spend most of my time there.  The food, the subculture, the neon, Osaka has it all. I can't wait to go back!
