I been posting progress photos of Shop Sam's panhead, as you may have seen. Got these earlier in the week from him.
Hope he's doing alright. As I have heard, his shop was well inside the tsunami zone in Sendai. None of my co-workers have had any contact/response from Sam or his shop. I hope him and his family is alright and that he can finish this pan and ride it for the first time.
Just got word that Sam is ok.
Also just heard that the rest of the Sendai shops we know are all ok, though some of their shops have been destroyed, thats all I can confirm.
