Abnormal Cycles built The Union.
Details and craftsmanship are very impressive.


...I wonder what my own "74 Flathead will turn into some day.

Kiddo Motors: Fashionably Noisy

At Kiddo Motors in Barcelona someone is making their dream come true with a garage/store/venue type of setup. Very cools guys indeed. Great shop with Zero Engineering and Deus bikes in stock. Kiddo also has some cool projects in the pipeline to watch out for.

Thanks for the tour, Sergio! - next time I'll bring more beers and maybe even show up on time (I missed this party by about 16 hours. How stupid is that?)

Harley 45" Magnum

I saw this bike at A-bombers 2011, and it was tight like...well....something very tight! WL frame and bottom, with a 900cc iron-head sportster top, cylinder, cam and rod set. The hill climb wasn't any kind of challenge at all. Very cool bike indeedy.
