DICKSHAUST: CHAMP ROAD MAGAZINE PHOTOSHOOT, PART IIDecember 29, 2014 3:27 am
If you didn’t see it on the Noriyaro Instagram, here it is: the best motorcycle exhaust ever made.
Written on the tank in marker, it says “chinpo rengo”, which could translate to “Cock Alliance”.
Most of the other bikes at the shoot were more traditional bosozoku rides.
The most popular models are old sub-400cc twins and fours from the late 70’s and early 80’s, like the Honda Hawk and CBX400F, Yamaha RZ250, Suzuki GS450 and Kawasaki Zephyr.
Imperial themes are commonly used on the bikes, such as on this tank, which has a kamikaze poem written on it…
…and the rising sun flag.
The rising sun over Mt Fuji is probably the most classic helmet design.
Notice the spare bottle of oil in the drink holder. Most of these old bikes tend to smoke pretty well.
This one looked like it was modified a long time ago, and hasn’t been messed with much since.
The little character on the keychain is Pipo-kun, the mascot of the Japanese police (“pipo” being the sound of a police siren).
You’re never old enough for spokey-dokes!
Just like on the cars, takeyari (bamboo spear) exhausts are also fitted to some of the bikes.
Video to follow, (including action shots of the dick bike).

Brilliant, love these bikes and that exhaust!
Does anyone know what those plastic and fabric nose fairings are called?
I wouldnt mind putting one on my 80’s cb750f for a bit of boso flair but don’t know what to search for on yahoo!
the plastic fairing with the kanji on it almost looks like a re-purposed sun visor. One of the ones that you see some people wear when going for a walk
It does – but it’s definately not.
Its an ACP wind visor fairing thats been flipped, I actually stumbled accross them about 20 minutes after asking on here!
its called an asashi windshield type it up in google translate you’ll find it on websites like rakuten
Me vuelve loco las cosas que hacen ! es increible japon!
