Kinfolk - Hand Built by Kusaka

I don't know too much about this company, but they sure have some beautiful bicycles!
Visit the Kinfolk Bicycle Co.
All of these bicycles are nice, but some of them are hand built by Kusaka, a master frame builder in Kansai, Japan, who has been building frames for racers in the Keirin for decades. These are elegantly perfected pieces that are all hand crafted. From what I've seen, he has awesome skill.
Read more about it on the Kinfolk page, here & there are some photos in the KINFOLK by Ways&Means flickr gallery of Kusaka's work here.

If there is a way to contact this man, please let me know. I'd really appreciate any information.
It would be an amazing experience and honor to work and learn some of this skill from him.
