Batteries, Beers & Gasoline

Will a car run on beer in the future - and when can we start to eat our old batteries???

There will properly be a lot of questions in Copenhagen this Dec. when we host the Climate Conference, that´s set to be essential for the worlds climate...

Meanwhile in the Batcave im´preparing for a new art piece that refer to questions like that.

It´s set to be launched a place where thoughts about future transportation and environmental requirements are highly focused... But i´ll get back to this.

The 2 paintings in this post is made by Mr. Franz Ackermann. Franz Ackermann is absolutely a FANTASTIC German artists, and a huge part of the inspiration for this latest project.

But this Tin Toy car i just bought in France - will also play a big role...


And don´t forget a 6 pack "battery" of cold beer....

Cheers

My Bike Trilogy - 1,2,3 ....

My art bicycle trilogy and build is done.

The 1 gear more HERE ROADSTER,


the 2 speed more HERE SPORTSTER


and the 3 speed more HERE SPEEDSTER



THE ROADSTER

This is the ROADSTER #3 (1 Speed bike), and the last in my bicycle "art" trilogy build.

This one is inspired from the Board Track Racers back in the early 1920th


I found pieces for this last bike all over the world. France, Italy, Germany, Denmark etc.
I restored everything, put it together, hand painted and polished it, so The ROADSTER bike would be 100% special..
The frame is a NOS Columbus frame 1980 (never been mounted before), Champagnolo 170 Strada 2 /Maffioletti vintage krank , Velocity deep V Rims, 700x28c Classic Panaracer on the back, Front tire: Continental Grand Prix 700x24c, short black stem, B17 narrow Brooks seat on a vintage NOS stronglight post, NOS Torpedo back hub mounted, NOS French Atom pedals Italian Gipiemme quick shifter etc.

This bike has not been on the street yet. But when the right buyer shows up, and pays the doe we´ll take it for a spin.

Why! - When this ROADSTER bike hits the street the first time - the NOS parts will not be 100% NOS anymore.... so this honor goes to the buyer....

Same Same - But Different...

Once I made this paint-job on the Panhead gastank. It was actually inspired from this vintage toy - same same but different...

Love the $mell of fresh paint in the morning..

Coffee is good to - but the fresh smell of paint in the morning reminds me of money in my pocket... Ahhhhhh - money so we can buy coffee, gaz, and more paint....

Just finished a couple of new paintings on demand, a road House dancing girl, and some freestyle abstract contemporary, or whatever you call it!

So don´t hesitate out there! if there´s a special motive you always wanted for a large painting - Let me know...I´ll promise to spend all the money on Panhead parts...

A Golden Chain - and This Is It!

This is The SPORTSTER Bike, and This Is It!

The bike is #2 in my Trilogy build called:
The 1 gear ROADSTER the 2 speed SPORTSTER and the 3 speed SPEEDSTER.

Try to say that line fast......

The only thing I need, is to put on the golden chain, and take it for a test run in the streets of Copenhagen.

I´ve hand painted everything, rechromed, polished and changed every bering.. 100% inspired from the Race bikes in the 70th to the early 90th.

Columbus frame, Shimano 600 krank, Velocity deep V Rims, 700x35 Kojak slick tire on the back, Benotto stem, Soma Major Taylor drop bar, S.San Marco Concor seat (Black suede) , NOS Malinard 1984 marked front hub with 700x23 tire mounted and bla bla bla.

But the Jewel! - No doubt, it´s the NOS Duomatic 2 Speed >>kick back< hub.

Honestly! - I don´t think i can create a more suitable and cool looking bike for the streets of Copenhagen . This is as god as it´s gets from me - this is it. But I´m also the man who thinks style and colors, are more important than brakes and light.....

Mullins Chain Drive

If you believe Harleys are meant to be started with a kick, you also know that 1200cc is rough for the pedal.... Many have discovered a pling kling klank repro pedal last maybe a season, or less... so what 2 do???

It looks like Mr. Mullins here is our savior...


Havn´t got a pedal yet but it sure look´s nice.

And so to say about this creation from Mullins Chain Drive...

On a Quiet Sunny Sunday...

After a good night out. There´s nothing like a quiet Sunny Sunday, and a ride to the ocean.






Enjoy the stuff that surrounds you.

Candy on a lazy day

There will always be different opinions when it comes to defining beauty....

But sweet curves and god proportions, never goes out of style.....


I know this Panhead, ain´t new stuff. But anyway, the pictures are relaxing to look at, it´s candy on a lazy day.
