There are interesting bikes that are handmade with an attention to detail and level of construction that are almost impossible to believe … and then there’s this Samurai bike designed by Kazushige Miyake and built by Futaku in Japan. The bike is made out of titanium using a blend of old world and new world techniques to produce a concept piece that’s light, rigid and obviously gorgeous. On the old world side, the curved frame parts are made with the traditional “Ebikan” welding technique that combines small pieces of metal with precision welds for an end result that resembles a shrimp shell and doesn’t just bend the pipes. In addition to the titanium brackets, clamps and rear-end, micro-laser processing techniques add additional design details to emphasize the Samurai image. This bike is a meticulously produced work of art that you can ride on the street.
