When I first clicked through I thought you guys had just got better at making 'period' photography. Glad I read the rest. Fantastic story----what an amazing coincidence!

yeah, it's odd to research an odd rare bike only to tie the builder back to your family. it still amazes me.

And that he (father in law) was able to dredge up the old photos. Cool stuff. You should curate them---get a photo and bike history exhibition up somewhere in SD.

Ha--perhaps! But I think the story is cool enough to hook people, and your father in law seems to have a good eye. The "Meeting Modernity" thing here at Neojaponisme (http://neojaponisme.com/category/past/photography-past/) is older, but they've got shows happening pretty regularly.

Between bikes, history, photography, world record setting (!), and the Japanese angle I think it could be pretty awesome!

As one of the 200, I miss your shop having a back room that served as a mountain bike museum.

Cool find and great story.
