Edward Woodward

I got this in Battle Creek, Michigan
The whole town smells like Cinnamon Graham's
I think these bikes were inspired by the South London biker scene of the early 80's.
You'd see them tearing round places like Norwood on cut down, big Jap bikes with drag bars. Ed had one.
Bikes got buried in forests, thrown in lakes etc, they were work bikes.
In 86 Kawasaki dropped The Black Eliminator 900.
South London went nuts!
Basically a Ninja in Bovver Boots.
I rode this to Brooklyn from Michigan
Pure joy.
Corners get bigger on a Kawasaki.
