This website is a group collaborative effort to help spread more knowledge about this vintage Japanese subculture. With more knowledge comes a greater understanding of the specifics that make the entire build. Only then can you appreciate the work and effort that goes into building a style that has been around for the last 50 years. Unfortunately, much of the information isn’t available in English or has been misinterpreted throughout the years. Hopefully this website will help clear up the unknowns and help preserve this subculture.

People that have helped make this website a possibility and provide their knowledge:

Brian Baker, Billy Phu, Reid Olliffe, Keith Measures, William Weston, Tadaaki Mimura, Cooper Macmillan
