BIKE: Honda GB250

LOCATION: Tokyo/Japan

BEHIND THE BUILD: Most of us have had those moto projects that start full of vision and promise, only to fizzle and fade. A part on back order, a tricky solution left unresolved or funds being appropriated by more pressing needs. So when Ryo Denda talked to us of his build taking several years our judges smiled knowingly, for his GB250 based machine sports nothing less than a monocoque type spine frame of his own design, fabricated by hand, from sheet steel, a trellis rear sub-frame, ridged mount rear swing arm, dual fuel cells and a plexiglass seat. A raw, creative adventure, this moto smashes genres, mashes up materials and manufacturing processes and most of all, goes to illustrate how far a builder can go when they ignore fear.

3位  傳田 良/ デンダ リョウGB250エンジン

 レンチ兄弟たちの大半は、最高のカスタムバイクを夢見て、想像と希望に満ち満ちてカスタムに取り掛かるのではなかろうか。でも時が経つにつれ、車両分解の試練やなかなか解決しないディテール、製作物の山に頭を悩ませる。そして日々の生活の中でビルダー自身の大切な時間や資金が圧迫されていき、当初の楽しい計画とは裏腹に、挫折という文字がアタマをちらつく日々を過ごすのではないだろうか。

しかし傳田さんは違った。“Let’s Build your own bike(バイクを作ってみたい)” という気持ちから何年もかけてこの1台が生まれたと、彼自身が語ってくれた。

何事も恐れず、めげずに90%の情熱と10%の技術で生まれた、まさにフレッシュなバイクなのだ!ホンダGB250のエンジンに彼自身が鉄板から手作りしたオリジナルのデザインのモノコック風フレーム、リジッドのスイングアーム、デュアル燃料タンク、トラリスフレームとアクリルで製作されたシートフレーム&シート……乗りやすさは二の次という潔さに、我々審査員はみな思わず微笑んでしまったのだ。 無骨で創造的な冒険に向かって、ルールに捕われず己の道を突き進んだ傳田さん。かっこいいじゃないか!
