1982 Kuwahara E.T.
The brother of E.T. #1
SOLD THE FRAME AND FORKS TO A MEMBER HERE
I call this one the little brother. It has some of the same components as #1, but a few lesser components. I never rode a Kuwahara groing up in the 70's and 80's, but I remember freaking out when I saw the picture of of the KE-1 when I was still riding. My 2 riding partners had a JMC and a Redline. I rode a gary turner. I wish I still had it. It must have been one of the first models. It had gary turner spelled out in black letters on the bottom tube. I hadn't ridden in a while until I picked up a 1999 diamondback viper at a thrift shop to mess around with. I really was not activley looking to buy or collect BMX bikes when I found these two Kuwahara's. Although these are only my second and third thrift store bikes, they have prompted me to look more. I probably have OCD when it comes to things like this, so I'll be looking as often as I can now. I can't imagine I'll find the mother lode or brother lode again though.
