Old Skool Yoshi skills

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - News -

WE ALL LIKE a bit of an old skool master demo, es­pe­cially when it comes from a man work­ing with min­i­mal re­gard for health and safety.

This chap wears a dust mask un­til he ac­tu­ally be­gins the process of tube-bend­ing; com­mend­able in it­self. How he man­ages to not set fire to the piles of pa­per­work and com­bustibles in his ‘work­shop’ is verg­ing on a mir­a­cle.

Yet it’s the non­cha­lant ex­per­tise he ex­udes while form­ing com­pound bends in ex­haust head­ers that re­ally im­presses. Just a torch and a limit gauge made from weld­ing rod is all he needs. Old ‘Pops’ Yoshimura would be proud.

See it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8m­mqbekr8w or go to the You Tube and dial in ‘old school tube bend­ing Yoshi style’.

Health and safety, old skool style
