Harley-Davidson Museum Displays Tsunami-wrecked Night Train
The bike has beednadrift for more than a year, after being set to sea by the huge tsunami disaster which hit Japan in 2011. The Night Train has crossed the ocean and was recovered on the coast of British Columbia by one Peter Mark.
Mark found the bike washed ashore during a low tide on the beaches of Graham Island. It has been carried across the sea in the container where it was stored by the time the tsunami hit Yokoyama's house. Mark has contacted Harley-Davidson and the manufacturer managed to trace the owner of this Night Train, offering to return the bike, but Ikuo denied the proposal.
Despite him living nou in temporary housing, Ikuo felt that the bike belongs to a museum as a memorial for those who died in the 2011 tsunami, and all the people who are now struggling to rebuild their lives.
