Daryl’s Bike by Classified Moto


The project entailed creating two identical bikes to accommodate production needs. Pictured is one of them. Or maybe both. Hard to say. They’re identical. The project required all hands on deck for a short, frantic time. Via : www.classifiedmoto.com

Erwin Evans Smith Photographer


Erwin Evans Smith (1886–1947), photographer, son of Albert A. and Mary Alice (Erwin) Smith, was born on August 22, 1886, in Honey Grove, Texas. When he was seven he moved fifteen miles west to Bonham with his mother, who had remarried after his father's death. As a boy he visited with relatives near Quanah, and he was introduced to ranch life in Hardeman and Foard counties. The cattle range so appealed to him that he began making sketches of horses and Indians, and he obtained an inexpensive camera to record what he saw. He rode the range in Arizona and Mexico as a regular cowhand, but he always took his camera along so that he could record what he knew was fast disappearing from the American scene.

Kon-Tiki expedition


The Kon-Tiki expedition was a 1947 journey by raft across the Pacific Ocean from South America to the Polynesian islands, led by Norwegian explorer and writer Thor Heyerdahl. The raft was named Kon-Tiki after the Inca sun god, Viracocha, for whom "Kon-Tiki" was said to be an old name. Kon-Tiki is also the name of Heyerdahl's book; the Academy Award-winning documentary film chronicling his adventures; and the 2012 dramatised feature film nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

Jaguar D Type


The Jaguar D-Type is a sports racing car that was produced by Jaguar Cars Ltd. between 1954 and 1957. Although it shares many of its mechanical components with the C-Type, including the basic Straight-6 XK engine design (initially 3.4 litres and uprated to 3.8 litres in the late fifties), the structure of the car was radically different. The innovative monocoque construction brought aviation industry technology to competition car design, together with an aeronautical understanding of aerodynamic efficiency. Read more

Converted Barn in Germany’s Countryside


Berlin Architect Thomas Kröger converted this old barn, in Fergitz on the west bank of the lake Oberuckersee, into a holiday apartment for four people and a main house that can also be rented as a holiday home for up to eight people. The rooms are grouped on two levels around the central hall of the barn. Glazed walls provide views to the wooden structure of the hall and a monumental fireplace. When the big barn doors are opened the boundaries between interior and exterior space disappear. Via : trendland.com

Hammer Kraftrad R80/7


Last year Patrik emailed Michael from Hammer Kraftrad. He said he would be interested in a bike and after few mails he decided to make the way from his homecountry Sweden to Germany. He came down from Sweden during last october with a clear image in his head what his bike should look like and a selection of his favourite Swedish beer. Also he already knew the right name for his motorcycle: Conrad, which is - as he explained- a wordcombination in italian an german. Michael and Patrik had a really long talk about his bike. It should become a gentleman's bike somehow just a little more dirty. During the process of building a lot of what was originally planned changed. For example the tank. First Patrik had the tank of an R80/7 in his mind but in the end they took the tank of an R75/6 It later became silk black with shiny pads out of aluminum and a leather strap on its back. The leather of the strap is the same as the one wrapped around the grips and used for the seat. Swedish leather that Patrik chose himself and did then send to Germany. It is really smooth and its colour really suits the silk black tank. The shiny parts are also a quite important part of the bike. There aren't just the tank pads but also the fenders and holder of the Tankbelt. The rather raw tires give the bike a litte more dirty look and in my opinion they suit the Swedish landscape and temperatures.
