Now for the funding. I had sold the R33 and made a profit, plus I sold all my accessories. I did the same with the Supra, and again with the Silvia. I bought a little Mitsubishi Chariot minivan as my daily and I also had my Honda CBR 900RR that I had brought back from the States that I could sell too, if I had to… So I bought other cars just to fix up/repair and resell, just to make a little more money.
I bought and sold a Toyota Corolla II “Windy”, a very basic little hatchback:
A Toyota Sprinter Marino, a kind’ve an egg shaped Corolla with a 20 valve 4AGE in it:
Unfortunately, I ended up having to sell my bike too . That really sucked. I’ve been through a lot on that bike, and I’ve met a lot of great people being a rider. I’ve rode from Las Vegas to California and all over Japan, she was the best. I rode her hardest all over Japan, but I felt it was time to let her go (plus it was killing my back anyway).
She was the last year of the Honda CBR 900 “Double R” and I had done her up in different color-ways: all Black, Black and Silver, an Erion Racing replica and lastly as a commemorative bike for Daijiro Kato:
RIP number 74…
