#2 TERAOKA NOBUYUKI
Ronin #2 is the final motorcycle in the art series and the paint scheme was designed by local Denver illustrator Samuel Lee Turner. Mr. Turner studied traditional Japanese illustration and tattoo art to accomplish his design. The artwork depicts the Samurai Teraoka Nobuyuki, who was the only warrior in the 47 Ronin clan who remained alive after they enacted revenge on the Lord who disgraced their master. The leader of the 47 Ronin, Oishi Yoshio, requested that Teraoka watch over the spirits of his fallen comrades, depicted as Tengu mountain creatures on the right side of the motorcycle. Mr. Turner portrays Teraoka on the opposite side wielding a heavy hammer, his weapon of choice during the counterinsurgency of the Ronin Samurai. The motorcycle is hand painted and exquisitely detailed in the style of traditional Japanese tattooed body suits.
Number 2 is the forth of the final group and is named after Teraoka Nobuyuki. He was an honest and loyal subject of Asano. He was the only one that survived after the loyalists committed self-dispatch, having reluctantly obeyed Oishi to do so and soothe the spirits of the other loyalists who preceded him. - Forty Seven Ronin 1893
