Shu's forty-one

I suddenly remembered the photos of Shu's 1941 UL I'd taken because I had just seen his bike on the Junk Motor blog, then Paulie's. The coincidence prompted action!

I shot the bike in December 2010 at Ocean Beetle, the shop north of Tokyo where Shu works. I still have a few bikes from that trip I need to get into the magazine. But too much material is a good thing, right?

It's completely original except for the headlight and '52 Panhead bags. Great bike, and he rides it everywhere. You know what's coming next: coming soon in GKM!
