A Jero Wood/Canvas, Shelter for Chrismas

The Jero is built to bring adventure to your doorstep. Inspired by the yurt - a portable structure developed by the nomadic people of Central Asia - they’ve taken time-tested principles and refined them using cutting edge design and manufacturing techniques to bring this ancient dwelling into the 21st Century. Its compact pack-size liberates valuable storage space when the yurt is stowed away, while the lightweight construction allows it to be transported in a car with ease.

BMW R75/5 by TON-UP GARAGE

.





This bike represents the children memories of Ton-up Garage client. He contacted the Garage because he saw their BMW Dark Law and he was confortable with their previous experience customizing BMW motorcycles. The R75/5 belonged to his stepfather and he remembered this motorcycle since his childhood. This was a family bike but at some point his stepfather gave the bike to a friend, although his friend left it parked in a garage for years and the bike was really abandoned. He asked Ton-up Garage a vintage style, with refined lines and glamour. They took the R75/5 and completely dismounted it and then rebuild it to the bolt. Pictures were taken by Photographer Aloisio Brito and Ton-up Garage Crew. (http://www.aloisiobrito.com)

Moto Morini 1973 350 Sport by Phil Aynsley Photography

.





All pictures © Phil Aynsley Photography

The V-twin range of Morinis were a product of ex-Ferrari designer Franco Lambertini, who was persuaded to join Morini in 1970 by Gabriella Morini (who had taken over the running of the company after her father's death in 1969). From the outset he designed the 350cc to be the basis of a modular series of bikes and in due course a 500cc version as well as 125 & 250cc singles were produced. The 350 was first shown in Strada guise at the Milan Show in 1971 and both it and the Sport entered production in 1973. The motor used several advanced features including Heron heads and the camshaft being driven by a toothed belt. This bike was restored by SCR Ducati for owner Brett Poole and has a few non standard parts including the tricolour Sport badge (should be red) on the top triple clamp, mirrors & the trim strip on the seat. 37hp at 8,500rpm. Dry weight 150kg. Top speed 172kph. Photographed in the Hunter Valley, NSW. 2014.
