Each year, the Kustom Fab shop tries to do something a little different to spark our creative juices and help us find new inspirations for our custom projects. This year, we decided to travel to Nagoya, Japan, to check out the Joints Custom Bike Show.

Our lead mechanic, Norio, took on the daunting task of being our tour guide/translator. His skill and familiarity with the area were key ingredients in our having a great time in Japan.

Between the rich culture, great food, and majestic scenery, Japan seems to have it all. 
The bike show did not disappoint and having the ability to experience everything else Japan had to offer was just icing on the cake.

If you are into older Harley motors and parts, then this bike show is your Nirvana. The show builders found various ways to take old parts and integrate them with new ideas, making the show a truly unique experience. Shows like this re-kindle our creative fires and keep us going forward.
 
These are the builders from Custom Work Zon. Group of nice guys…they even let me sit on the bikes.
