Story on Shigeru Nakagawa who has been in the business of frame building for 30 years

Thought you might like to read about this Osakan who who has been building his own brand of bicycles for thirty years.
Nakagawa began his love affair with bicycles as a rider for the Zunow racing team, competing on the track, road, or even at cyclocross races. He broke his leg badly in a traffic accident at the age of 20 however, putting an end to his pro racing ambitions. If he couldn’t ride them, he decided, he would build them.

Yes thanks for sharing. I saw the cyclocross movie that is mentioned at the BFF a few years ago. It was nice. I'm a big fan of the Japanese builders: there are a few quite interesting videos of Nagasawa and Kalavinka on youtube.
