They are now called Kuwahara Bikeworks, not sure if it's still the same Kuwahara family running it. Looks like they're a distributor for American brands in japan. ... 72&lang=ja

The name is still going (in some form).

From memory, didn't they produce a rerun of KZ-1 frame and forksets from original blueprints avout 3-4 years ago?

It is the same Kuwahara as back then, although I suspect a lot of actual Kuwahara built bikes were done as a a fabricator for other brands.
