Must have been after Campagnolo parts. Those are some of the best.

Always admire an entrepreneur. However, this guy's business plan needs some work.

Difficult to imagine how he would run a shop as a going concern thru theft.

What is a high-class bicycle? Did it go to all the best schools?

This guy will get less time, if any, than some harmless dopehead.

wow. i wonder what he planned to do about the serial numbers stamped into the frames? how could he possibly register them?? and whos to say the owner of the stolen bike wouldnt walk into the new store and spot his old bike? Now That would have made a good story!

He admits to stealing expensive bicycles, yet denies stealing bicycle parts? Very sensible....

If he's a thief, he's probably a liar.

Rule One in the J police handbook.

Best bike parts are now Shimano. Campy has come back but not as great.

Hey, what this guy should have done is hire those two teenage girls whom the cops let go for snatching a woman's purse on their motorbike. If you are cute you can get away with anything.

Shimano is still lagging behind Campy, new Dura ace flopped in the first few months. Sram leads the pack.

Hm, it doesn't make much sense. How long does he think he could operate a shop that sold stolen bicycles?

i don't get it... :/

Ummm... guys? This guy was a failure at normal life and had to resort to theft. I doubt he was smart enough to think it through to the point of wondering what to do about the serial numbers.

If Yamaguchi wanted to open a shop but didn't have the money, he could have sold his house in Setagaya.
