Hakosuka Van, Honda S600, Japanese Bike Culture, Car Spotting, Swap Meet

April 06, 2019

Last weekend I went to a swap meet, but it was so much more than that. Of course there were motorcycle parts and accessories, but also plenty of classic JDM cars and bikes were in attendance.

The C10 Series Skyline was built from 1968 to 1972. This Skyline was built in 1970. It has a 1,483cc inline 4 engine.

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
