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....

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


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...

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.

More pics. at Cal Modified

Painter and All-time Hero - James Rosenquist

It suddenly hit me, that Mr. James Rosenquist is must go on my All-time Hero list....

He is absolutely one of the greatest painters i know of, and a bonus! - he´s still alive...
In "the Old day" that wouldn't be cool for a Painter...

Rosenquist at work.

The title for this painting (1961): I Love You with my Ford.

Well of cause....

- I think the best thing is having an idea and not knowing how to make it. Because of that, some new form might appear. Whether it´s good, bad, banal, or fantastic, you can reflect on that and go further. Quote: James Rosenquist
