One thing leads to another...

Last week I got a air compressor from CP for free. The day later I went to the local hardware store to buy an air hose and some other air tools. In front of the market I found a super sweet Miele bicycle with stunning details.















Later the owner showed up and one thing leads to another I´ll maybe have some spare parts for his headlight and a friend from him rides a BSA M21 and a 60´s Triumph 500 in our city.

R.I.P. Kulle!


Today was Kulles burial. Died much too young. Here is a video from him as leadsinger from the "The Fuckin´ Kius Band".
Later he become popular as the speaker of "Eckart" in the "Werner" comics.
Hard to see such o fine man go away.
He gave me good advices when I bought my first Triumph.
Poorly he will never see it finished.

Drunken Slacklining


A friend is going to Argentina for 5 weeks and so we had all together a BBQ at the beach last night.
With lots of Beer and a Slack Line.

Little Italian MotoBitch


Working on my DailyCityDriver to get it ready for the road. The rear break won´t do it´s Job anymore and the front brakes on old Smallframe Vespas don´t work from the first day on.

CP´s Baywindow Project








Found in a swedish forest and now waits for someone who wakes that sleeping beauty.
There is not so much work to do as it might look like.

54´Triumph 6T

Progress and Success



Last year I found this 65´Vespa V50 first series in a garden between bushes and trees. Standing there for 10 years. Now I´m rebuilding it for my girl. This Weekend I had some success in the progress.



New tires and shocks. Changed all bearings and sealings.


Rebuilded the complete engine.
Still need to change or zinc plate some screws on the engine and make a complete set up.
