Ryuichi Sakamoto is an icon to many. His musical compositions, especially with YMO have influenced not only the Japanese but musical groups making electronic beats worldwide. He is also a humanitarian; often speaking out against war, and promoting human rights whenever possible.

Sakamoto is also an environmentalist. He’s one of the first musicians to work on offsetting the carbon footprint in staging his live performances and founded “More Trees” to help support the cause.

Now, with the help of the Makoto Yuu, More Trees has produced a bicycle for the cause.  The “More Tree” Cruiser based on the Sweden’s “Kuronan” bike is finished in a spectacular black wash that runs from the grips to the pedals. Openers has an excellent photo essay online showing the More Trees bike. It is absolutely gorgeous.

Many more views after the jump.
