Did anyone here browse AE86 parts on Yahoo Auctions back in 2004?
If so you may have seen a hilarious guy a few times, maybe he's well known in Japan.

***Pictures removed***

Do any of the 4 or 5 active users on here remember that guy?
Is he still around somewhere?

In the 7th picture the guy holding the cylinderhead is ‘runningfree86’. That’s his red trueno in the first picture. So you could ask him on his instagram who the other person is.

Success!!!

Well spotted zenki, I never heard of the runningfree86 guy before. I did a quick check on his Instagram and I found a photo of the same guy riding the same bike posted on march 27th 2018. I followed the link on that pic and I found our man.
For anyone interested, here's his Instagram:

https://www.instagram.com/ryota_4ag/

Turns out his name is ryota_4ag, I would never have thought that he would still be around. There's even pics of him riding the same bike on his Instagram.

Really, no other comments on these pics?

I really believed that people would find these pics as hilarious as I do. He had many other pics that I didn't save, the guy really had a great mind for finding an amusing way of photographing the parts he was selling.
