1960 500cc Manx Norton


According to the factory records held by the Norton Owners Club in the UK, this 1960 500cc Manx, frame no R11M 86448, was built on 28 June 1960 and then dispatched in July 1960 to a Kyle Palmer in Singapore. One reference on the internet identifies Kyle Palmer as a Norton Agent, while another states that he was the race mechanic for a Singaporean Prince. Apparently the Prince used Mr Palmer’s name when buying his racing bikes in order to avoid his family’s displeasure at his involvement in such a dangerous sport. Whatever the absolute truth of the matter this Manx certainly started it’s racing life a long way from it’s Bracebridge Street birthplace. For sale

Oak Pass Main House by Walker Workshop


Photos by Joe Fletcher

The Oak Pass Main house uses an "Upside Down" program, with public spaces above the bedrooms, which are buried into the hill and beneath a green roof of edible herbs. This relatively large house at 8,000 square feet appears much smaller and carefully integrated into the surrounding landscape, which includes over one hundred and thirty Coast Live Oaks. A seventy five foot swimming pool, with infinity edges on three of four sides, bisects the house and slips below one of the largest Oaks on the property.

Muxima by Ton-Up Garage


Muxima is Ton-Up Garage latest presentation. It was built on a Honda 650. Muxima it’s the name of a village in Angola and it means “heart” in Kimbundu. The goal was to build a bike for our client that lives in Angola and that could reflect the spirit of the riding experience on the roads of Muxima and especially towards Quiçama National Park. The colors were chosen inspired by the nature surrounding those roads. They’re mainly dirt roads surrounded by an imense vegetation meaning that you’ll get an off-road riding experience. Alex (bike owner) races in Angola enduro and supermotard races and he wanted a custom motorcycle not only to ride and travel on those Muxima dirt roads, but also as a daily commuter in the Angola city where he lives and works.
