What more can you have? Iconic Design (Isetta bubble car), classic engineering and technology (look at that engine, aerofoil….) and what a glorious mix of aesthetics (from the vibrancy of the orange colour through to the mix of exposed components at the rear).
I love this. Wouldn’t be too good for the supermarket run though…..or would it?
I really like this clever yet simple piece of design engineering. It looks like it would provide a great ‘fiddle factor’ as well as look pretty cool (in my opinion).
Exquisite Custom Designed Motorcycles 2013
Few machines are as ripe for customization as motorcycles. They’re pure mechanical simplicity. Two wheels, an engine, a transmission, some brakes and handlebars, and endless possibilities. Go to any motorcycle race and walk through the parking lot. You won’t find two bikes that are exactly alike. If dogs are a facsimile of their owners, motorcycles are their two-wheeled equivalent.
Nobody understands this better than Chris Hunter, author of a new book book: The Ride.
Chris was asked by ‘Wired’ to list the 10 best custom machines to come out in 2013, and this is what he came up with. Enjoy.
A wonderful timeline journey of Honda – through all it’s design and engineering excellence over the years.
