Ichiban means first, right? So is this your first bike? Maybe you should take the advice from those here trying to help.

It means "number one " but yes, it could be translated as "first" and also easily understood  :D

thanks for your help, I am working away on getting it the mods done so I can make a new seat

I think he must be a big Andy Kaufman fan. 

each one of these videos is funnier than the last.  thank you for taking the time to so thoroughly document the destruction of so many parts at once. 

this is such a train wreck, i can't look away.

 :o This last video which is the only one I watched, I could not get all the way through.

Dude. This is all I am going to say. Put away the duct tape screw driver, plastic stacks and JB welded on carb and go write your own obituary. You are seriously scaring me. I retract my clubman bar offer. I do not want to contribute in any way when this all comes crashing down.

i don't think the plastic stacks are going to be a problem, because i don't think it's ever going to get that far.

I think this is better than cafe racer tv. Can't wait to see what's next!

I just watched all 7 movies.

This build, on a scale of 1 to 10, is fucking awesome!

OK, I didn't watch the videos until now. The brake pads with sandpaper taped on them confirmed it, up until that point I was only 80% sure it was an elaborate prank. Multiple different size vice grips but no proper wrenches, and the vice grips on the allen bolts had me suspicious, but the brake pads confirmed it. Clever humor.
