8 years ago, I helped Mike and Gabe from MASH get two track bikes from Japan, Kalavinka for Mike and 3 Rensho for Gebe. Back then, it was not very difficult to find these master pieces locked up in some Kerin enthusiast’s closet. Mr. Tanabe from Kalavinka helped me pack and ship these two beautiful bikes for them. Yesterday, Mike sent me a pic with Gabe’s 3 Rensho in its original condition on Mike Giant’s poster. It was very touching to see the bike again. I truly enjoyed the moment when things from the past popping up in completely new and unexpected context. Thanks Mike, Gabe and Mike Ginat.
