In 1954 Hideo ‘Pops’ Yoshimura started the Yoshimura company in Japan. Pops was trained as an airplane mechanic during the war and afterwards made quite a reputation working on motorcycles of servicemen stationed in Japan. Pops had quite a talent at modifying existing parts to make more power and although Pops worked on planes, cars, and all manner of other combustion engine powered vehicles, motorcycles were his first love. Yoshimura passed away in 1995 but he left a legacy as a master craftsman, tuner and fabricator and was one of the pioneering personalities of superbike racing. In 2000, he was inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame.
