History of ace cafe since 1938

ace_cafe_history

 

The Ace Cafe was established in 1938 on the then brand new North Circular Road surrounding London. It was a simple roadside Cafe catering to travelers, particularly truckers. With its proximity to Britain’s fast arterial road network, and being open 24 hours, the Ace Cafe soon attracted motorcyclists too.

Year later the Ace Service Station featured eight petrol pumps, all catering for different brands. During the war period the pumps provided an all-night service. Also featured was a “Washmobile” believed to be the first automatic car wash in the UK.

 On 16th November 1940, the cafe received a direct hit from a bomb during the blitz of London in WWII and was completely destroyed. Apparently no one was killed or injured.

After the war the Ace Cafe was reopened in temporary accommodation and subsequently rebuilt in 1949.

Rikuo Motorcycle Story one of a kind story

rikuo

 

The Stranger-Than-Fiction Saga of Rikuo,
Harley Davidson and the Birth of Japanese Motorcycle

In 1935 Sankyo Company acquired a license to manufacture Harley-Davidson motorcycles in Japan. A part of the deal was that the bikes could not be exported outside of Japan and that the bikes would be called Rikuo, a name that roughly translates to “the king of the roads.”

With Alfred Richard Child at helm, the mass production of RIKU’O started. This marked a beginning for Japan’s large motorcycle industry. The original RIKU’O factory was destroyed in the Hiroshima bombings.

Only a handful of Rikuo bikes exist outside of Japan and Riku Routo has a bike so unique that even Japanese collectors are not known to have one. The bike in question, a RIKU’O 1200 with a sidecar, found its way to Russia during the war from where Riku Routo salvaged it in 1996 – in its original shape.
