Boys (and Girls) and their bikes: Mongoose edition..

I spent some time on BMX bikes back in the day, I even recently bought and tricked out a Durcus One in an effort to reconnect with those days, but after meeting these guys I realized I wasn't even close. Dude-san's bike is an early 80's mongoose, completely decked out with vintage parts (sans the headstem), and he rides it as proudly as a 12 year old in the semi-finals at the Aussie titles. The girl was riding a much more contemporary model, which had been given to her by the bloke. Awesome..

Sweet ass bikes :)

I'm going back to Tokyo for a holiday in August. Can you recommend anything fun that's on at that time? I've only ever been in May before.
