Formed by riders who gather at this shop
[TRIDE RACHING TEAM]
“All the members are wearing matching racing suits and participating in a vintage bike race!!”
The conversation gets lively with someone's words,
In 2013, the concept of the suit was gradually decided as the new year started.
We had all the members ordering it.
On this day, Kadoya Bargain will be held once every six months.
Even those of us who normally work in factories mobilized to help with customer service and sales.
Get off to the shop floor.
At this moment when the basting of the racing suit is ready.
I decided to have them come to the store for a fitting.

Mr. Kubota
TEAM TRIDE [West Leader]
I had a racer brought in from my hometown, Shizuoka, early in the morning on a holiday.
Mr. Kubota is a private builder whose race participation history was previously introduced on the HF blog.
[L・O・C] Second round of Legend of Classic, from Fuji Speedway
Participating in this BSA GOLD STAR.
Of course, this vehicle was also assembled entirely by his own hands.
In the second race, both the engine and riding were in great condition.
This guy is always so cool.

Seita-kun
TEAM TRIDE [East Leader]
Kadoya, a specialized manufacturer of leather jackets
Since he lives locally and can come by bike, we decided to ask him to come by motorcycle as well. .
The [INDIAN CHEAF] that I rode that day was for everyday riding around town.
The machine that will actually enter the race is [INDIAN SPORTS SCOUT]
Normally, the basting fitting would be carried out across the machines that will actually participate in the race.
It is desirable, but
Only a few days left until the final round of the MCFAJ Clubman Road Race in Tsukuba on September 29th.
SPORTS SKOUT was brought to TRIDE to be made into a racer.
When it comes to basting fittings, let alone racing suits, as a maker.
As much advance information as possible is required, and the riding position is similar to that of a race vehicle.
Since there was almost no difference, I brought in INDIAN CHEAF.
That's why.
It gets very complicated, but
Seita-kun is also a natural tiger rider.
Johnson Motors was handling it as a tuning part for commercial cars.
Equipped with a delta head, a rare racing kit part, the chopper custom
The 1952 model [TIGER100],
It would have been used only in off-road racing in America,
Such as a 1951 [TR5] that had brand new headlights at the time when it was delivered.
Something that enthusiasts will jump on,
He rides roughly and with style without any hesitation.
An exquisite stance unique to Seita-kun.
There's no way you can imitate it!
If Mr. Kubota is cool,
Seita-kun is so cool.

Each piece has its own unique features, down to the smallest parts.
INDIAN logo mark is included or engraved...
You can see the careful craftsmanship of this era, when the prestige of the manufacturer was at stake.
How are you?
This tank view is so cool.

Seita-kun brought more than just a motorcycle.
Kadoya, a specialized manufacturer of leather jackets
For grass races such as dirt tracks that were popular in America.
Is not it,
Both suits are made-to-order 2-piece racing suits.
Made in America around the 60's.
The crisp primary color scheme symbolizes the era.

The atmosphere of racing suits at the time
The design incorporates matching with the vintage racer brought in.
We manufacture racing suits with current MFJ official specifications.
The order specifications are also full of information.

Although it is a racing suit for the entire team.
Riding position and other details vary depending on the bike.

Separate handling, step back [prone, forward leaning posture]
Kadoya, a specialized manufacturer of leather jackets
We give top priority to the posture in the riding position,
In order to achieve both ease of wear and fit,
The bending angle of the knee and the amount of storage behind the knee, relative to the position of the center of the knee
What is the position of the knee cup? ,, Is the distance from your knees to your inseam sufficient?
What about the amount of momentum during knee grip and split leg during bank? ,,
Etc. What kind of posture should you take during the race throughout your whole body?
Listen as closely as possible to the rider and check the details.
To go.

Seita-kun takes the opposite riding position from Kubota-san.

With the handle up, the steps are closer to the front.
The angle at which the knees bend is almost a right angle.

Due to the high position of the handle
Even when the body is lying down, the shoulders and elbows are almost in the same position as the handlebars.
This is different from Mr. Kubota, who maintains a forward leaning posture.
It will need to be addressed.

I guess I'm a little sleepy.

But then, when I saw the smile on my daughter's face that peeked out from time to time,
Obviously the usual gokigennondakreitakun that I know
On the contrary, he was a nice father.
A final word to my bored daughter.
“When you’re done, let’s go to 7-Eleven!”

This smile...
