Nakamoto’s Kinfolk

Nakamoto's Kinfolk

Nakamoto’s Kinfolk has been haunting me for a while but today I saw the correlation between it and the passionate conversions the Japanese perform of low-bore, off-the-peg Yamahas and Kawasakis into into immaculate cafe-racers and I fell in love with it all over again.

It’s aggressive, muscular front end exudes an intimidating stance, but coupled with the slender frame of Kusaka-san, Kinfolk’s legendary builder, creates the Zen-like composure of a samurai entering battle. The Kinfolk maxim, ‘Run With The Hunted’ only adds to the warrior ethos, but the fighting spirit of this Kinfolk is embodied by Nakamoto’s announcement that he’s a one-percenter—and if you have to ask, you’ll never know.
