Hideo used the 1954. Cabton 600. A Japanese car with a twin engine, vertical cylinder, single camshaft. And the engine is manufactured by Mitsubishi. And although he failed to win, Hideo was mesmerized by the feeling that he was taking off in a plane.
Then Japanese motorbikes were British and German counterparts. The cars look fragile due to poor build quality. And after a period of use, Hideo decided to switch to a more reliable machine from the UK. BSA Golden Flash, 650 cc twin engine, vertical cylinder, single camshaft similar to the Cabton 600. Hideo then tweaked the BSA, reducing weight and increasing engine power. His version of the Yoshimura-BSA 650 regularly wins at Itazuke airport.
