Wow that's amazing it was still in there and that it made it all this way. Too bad it's rusty :?

Here is another update story and the picture shows the bike now washed out of truck and in the sand, wow I guess the tide -weather blew it out of truck box? and truck box is now gone. They may be lucky if it is still there? :shock:

They say the dealer plans to restore it for him 8-). Funny thing is that now the most famous Harley in the world is owned by a Japanese man (I love that). It will never replace his family sadly , but a great gesture from the Harley people :) Boy that would be a big draw at a motorcycle show! The bike is famous now.

In the video on this clip you see a few pictures of the bike before the tsunami in the truck box from the owner.

Well, the bike has been p/u by boat and then truck to a Vancouver dealer who is prepping it to go back to Harley Japan to be restored! :)
