Final design collaboration build with Tanabesan of Kalavinka Cycles here in Tokyo. I revamped some of his logos and collaborated on some shirt designs in return for this frame. The top tube decal I created for the shirts that eventually we decided to use for this. The lady on the seat tube I found from the depths of the shop and chopped off some surrounding designs to simplify it.

The senjafuda on the fork is my japanese family name with the words 'konjo' meaning spirit and 'dokyo' for courage.

The omamori on the seat is for 'victory'.

They are his pictures and he can do what he wants with them. They are his creative work and he may want control of who uses them for what. I'm sure if you asked him nicely he might send you a copy with a watermark on it.
