Harley Davidson Motorcycle From Japan Tsunami Washes Up on Canada Beach

A Harley Davidson from the Japanese tsunami in March 2011 has washed up on the coast of British Columbia. The rusty motorcycle has Japanese plates. It was found inside a storage container, which also contained golf clubs and camping equipment. Take a look:



Time reports that authorities were able to track down Ikuo Yokoyama, the 29-year-old owner of the bike using its plates. Yokoyama survived the tsunami, but he lost his home and three family members. Yokoyama says he immediately knew the bike was his when he saw the photograph.

Time also says that the Maritime Museum of British Columbia recently launched the Tsunami Debris Project, an effort to return personal items that wind up on Canada's beaches back to their owners in Japan.
