Prototypes and packaging

Alongside components that “can’t be repaired” one of my pet peeves is parts you can’t reach without disassembling half the vehicle. 


 

Tracker takes a turn

Animism aside, it strikes me that custom bikes like to build themselves. You start off with an idea of what you want, and as the build evolves the bike nudges you towards the form it really wants to take. 


 

In rust we trust

Here’s a fun fact: the title of Neil Young’s Rust Never Sleeps album was suggested by Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh who originally coined the phrase as a company slogan for Rust-Oleum when he worked in an advertising agency.  


 

Triton thoughts…

Three years ago to this very day I purchased a Triton. It wasn’t running and it wasn’t registered, but the idea of owning a classic cafe racer – arguably the definitive classic cafe racer – was impossible to resist. Three days ago I helped load it into the back of a truck and, if all goes well, it should be in the hands of its new owner today. The circle of life, and all that.
