5 thoughts on “Old School Sundays with Goro Tamai

    • I think I remember hearing/reading that the hitchhiker was also inspired by the idea of a front wheel undertaker which is part of the reason that back in the day a real hitchhiker required that you rode in and out on different sides of the bike. I think I also remember hearing that the Plywood Hoods messed around with locking steerer/head tubes (along the lines of a locking break lever) to make a stationary front-wheel undertaker possible.

      The trick in the video was known as a “Miami Overture” and it was invented (I believe) by Brian Scura who also invented the Gyro.

      (I am obviously old. Time for my nap.)
