As a kind of celebration of one year in business and also a "Hello!" to the motorcycle world, we had our first stand at the Carole Nash Classic Bike show in Stafford last weekend. It was absolutely fantastic to meet so many interesting people and the response to our display was wonderfully positive. We had a couple of Japanese assistants in yukata (summer kimono), some Japanese antiques and signs and we even brought along a few bikes.
The raffle for the 2017 50th anniversary Honda Monkey went well. The three charities we supported are CLIC Sargent (for children suffering cancer), the National Association for Bikers with a Disability, and the Liberian Assistance Program, which supports a school in Liberia. We will announce the winner of the raffle once we've managed to get hold of him!
A surprise bonus for us was winning Best Costume award. Well done Shizuka and Yuriko.
We are always looking to bringing the rare, the unusual and the simply beautiful and the positive feedback we got has instilled us with added vigor to find more wonderful bikes from the mystic orient! Thank you to all those who attended and came and said Hi!
