Working on a littte side project. Re painting a old 10" board and then mounting my NOS Lightwaight Tracker SXtrack - NOS red Tracker Copers - Nos 80´s Sims "The Wheel" etc. All the best parts from back then.

Further I have no idea if Mr. Presley was painting or creating anything colorful in his spare-time, but one thing´s for sure! and that´s why he must on the ALL-TIME HERO list.
Elvis was creative, he had style and good taste - and was way ahead of his time....
The King has been, and still is, a major inspiration to all different kind of artists.
I don´t think it was because of the later wealth, nor the circumstance of product placement.
But Creative people needs inspiration - I truly understand the choice of more than 3 Harley´s, and a home full of colorful art-pices.
Right now, after the financial crise and crap, I´ll say Mr. Presley again has lyrics, EVERYBODY SHOULD PAY ATTENTION to -
A little less conversation:
A little less conversation, a little more action please
All this aggravation ain´t satisfactioning me
A little more bite and a little less bark
A little less fight and a little more spark
Close your mouth and open up your heart and baby satisfy me
Satisfy me baby
Klik to see videoclip and listen to the song. (Cool Cars & Harleys included..)

People ask - that is it with those colored glasses! -
I can only say, I have these L.A eyeworks in all different colors, and why!
I´ll tell you.
Sometimes you not the master of choosing and setting the colors. Sometime you are invited to places with all white walls, white funiture, and minimalistic white tiny deco stuff. White, white, clean, clean, and clean. ZZZZZZZzzzzz that´s so boring. BUT HEY! then you pull out your colored shades and they helps you through the night...
Some of you know what i´m talking about. When you see a car, and you suddenly have that OHH MY feeling... Your eyes are glued to the shapes and colors, and time stands still.
After a while when you start breeding again, and blood runs to the head, you think - I must have one of those, otherwise I´ll never sleep again... But in real life only a very few of us have one of those cars. So to make you sleep again, I can tell you, that those who have them, don´t really "have" them. They just take care of them - for a while....
PininFarina was capable to create and combine cars and colors, that gives us that amazing feeling. No matter of age, bagground or skin color. Thats why he´s deffenatly a ALL-TIME HERO..

Then I´ll promish you to start building something els.....
But until then: Here the SPORTSTER´s final color sketch.
Some of you Biker folks proberly remenber the awesome AMF Harley-Davidson gastanks from the 70´s
Parts small line ud. All hubs are NOS. Just found a very nice French Malliard front hub with 1984 ingarved on it. Never been used. Chance the fat in the berings, polish it, and you got a small piece.
Volocity rims from the Track Shop
Got these fantastic Caps from Octopus Caps, they make them from recycled fibers in Columbus, Ohio. How great, and we like Columbus in all means!
Visit Octopus Caps, Great quality and fit, Fast shipping and nice Price. Go buy - Highly recommended.

The new drawings and first parts, are on my desk.
It has to be even more basic, than the 3 Speed-Speedster, that means the nice Sturmey-Archer Trigger shifter must go. Sad but true!
Goodbuy to the trigger and 3 speed SRAM T3 and, hello to the TORPEDO-Duomatic (kick back 2 speed hub) -
unfortunately that one has not been produced for over 20 years!
That´s a shame! truely, I find the hub and idea just perfect for Urban bikes.
And I´m not the only one with that hub/bike combination in mind - look at this guy.
Even the bike company Pashley have given the Duomatic thought - thums up! creating this cool looking vintage racer.
Untill the Bike manufactures will see the "2 speed light", and let the DUROMATIC - RISE FROM THE ASHES...
We can only wish and search the web. - and after a little hunt Uhhhhhhhh Yeah - bingo!
I discovered this hidden treasure in Holland.
Look who they shine ***$$*BLING BLING $$ new old stock Duomatic´s . never been used*** Wooooouuuu...
And here´s what the lucky owner Marco right about it:
I got a lot of contact over the last weeks via the hubstripping page. There is unbelivable amount of persons who are interested in hubs! I got in contact with a hub freak in Germany. He offered me a few dozen Fichtel & Sachs Torpedo Duomatic and Automatic hubs with 36 spoke holes. He got them by a german bicycle maufacturer who stored them in his cellar stock since 1981.
There were two aspects who influenced me:
- Diversifing my retirement arrangement
- Hub fetish
Since one week I´am the owner of 100 Sachs Duomatic and 50 Sachs Automatic (red version) hubs 36 holes!
Details will follow in a seperate post. My idea is to sell them via Hubstripping.com!

Honestly! - It doesn´t go faster with this tire, but it sure look like you´r ready to Burn Out... I put the Schwalpe KOJAK slick (700x35)on the Speedster bike to give a little more streets comfort.
Black rims, Red stripe, White lettering! Good Old American racing look.
We love it - And for sure also the name - KOJAK.....
