Gl1000: Pittet and worn brake calipers and master cylinders

Still working on the gl1000 '76 project bike, and I've just taken the brake calipers*3 and master cylinders*2 apart...and found this. Must have only been a matter of a few miles before something could have gone wrong.

Sandy pistons & Rusty springs.

Yamaha SR500 Tracker

Joy-ride city! Very nicely executed design on an SR500.
Congratulations to the builder - good job!
Question that remains is: Will it be ridden, or will it be sitting on the mantelpiece?

Jokers of Sweden!

Thanks for riding all over Gothenburg for hours to find the spare clutch-plates! We'll do the same any day :-)

Harley Davidson 1200cc 1931

It's for sale, and I'd love to get my hands on this thing and bob the hell out of it. It's kinda asking for it with that too-nice redone paint job and also has that vibe that it's never really been ridden...but desperately wants to....

Marstrand's native son Mats Arneson

Following a breakdown during our A-Bombers 2010 run, Mats and his family took us in, gave us parts, food and shelter for the night in the picturesque setting of coastal city Marstrand. Amazing hospitality towards complete strangers. Here are a few pics of Mats' own bikes. Love the "Panna"!

The Grease-Cave

This is the only shop in town that gets to call all the other shops uptight knob-rubbin' glitter sissies....this is the Grease-Cave. When you crawl in, you get the feeling that tools, bolts and metal just grows mysteriously out from the walls.
