A dazzling dekochari art bike has been spotted on the streets of East London.

Built in a mere five weeks by London resident Charlie Hope and friends, this dekochari features a flashy light display and a body of precision-cut aluminum sheeting that has been hand-folded and riveted to a steel frame.

The music in the video is "Ichiban-boshi Blues" (vocals by Bunta Sugawara and Kinya Aikawa), the theme song from the Torakku Yarou movie series that sparked Japan's dekotora art truck craze in the '70s, which in turn inspired the dekochari phenomenon.
