1939 Kurogane Type 95

1939 Kurogane Type 95

Description

1939 Kurogane Type 95

Kurogane Type 95 was an iconic Japanese military motorcycle designed for the elite. Its high ground clearance of 20 cm made it stand out and earned it the nickname "double-decker". Due to its enormous size, riding a solo machine was very challenging, and therefore all motorcycles were supplied with sidecars.

The first Kurogane 1260cc was produced by Nihon Nai-Enki in 1935 by order of the Japanese army. The "big brother" of this motorcycle can safely be considered a motorcycle Rikuo - extremely popular with the military motorcycle. Untrained person can easily take Kurogane 1260cc for said Rikuo, which is not surprising, because the first was in fact a rework of the second, though significantly increased in size.

The Nihon Nai-Enki plant, located in Hiroshima, was destroyed during the atomic bombing, along with almost all its documents, making it challenging to find accurate information about the Kurogane motorcycles.

The specimen in the collection is a unique piece of history. It was manufactured in Japan in 1939 and found its way to the United States after the war. It was then restored by a new owner before becoming part of the collection at the museum of technics "Motorworld by V. Sheyanov".
