Lävi´s and Robins bikes were invited to show and both scored second prices, Lävi from classic custom and Robin from old school, Robins amazing Triumph won first price from best paint, that bikes so perfectly painted that everywhere it goes it wins a trophy
of best paint, like couple years back at Norrtelje.
Hese is a Finnish 44 year-old man trying to solve a paradox of wanting to be constantly on the move and to find a home where to settle down. As a solution he will build a mobile home and find a place where to turn off the engine for good. For this he travels from Finland to Anchorage, Alaska, customises a sixty year-old truck with his friends and drives to Vancouver Island to seek for peace of mind. That is the plan.
The film will follow Hese through the process of preparing and funding the journey to fixing the truck and driving it to Vancouver Island.
Alcan Highway is a film about a journey, a dream which seems to be coming true. But is it what Hese really wanted?
Lävi and Robin Left to Copenhagen yesterday to take their bikes to the Copenhagen bike expo.Jude is flying there on friday also. So tuesday night there was a lot of polishing going down at the youth house.
Lets keep our fingers crossed for some trophys and hope that the boys find their way out from Christianstad??!!
Theres two major swap meets next weekend near Helsinki. Forssa rompetori and the annual Walkka MC swapmeet.Definetly gonna check out the Walkka swap. Might be a third one too but i cant remember what it was. So lots of old shit is changing owners next weekend.
Now its just mancaveing for a couple of months. Nobody likes skiing anyways. In the early days of evolution people killed some animals and locked the cave door and came out when the snow melted off. I think we should do that too.
This November 3-5, 2011, Auctions America by RM in partnership with RM Auctions will be lifting the gavel on one of the Chicago area's best known treasures -- The Lee Hartung Collection. Billed as the "Ultimate Barn Find Auction", the three-day sale will include over 2500 lots, and will put up for sale literally hundreds of America's rarest and most unique two- and four-wheeled vehicles.
Lee Hartung was a collector's collector. Based in Glenview, IL, Hartungs collection rested on 4 acres in the middle of the North Chicago suburb, and was amassed over the 60 years since he purchased the property in the 1940s. For those fortunate enough to get a glimpse of Lee's collection over the past decades -- they were among a select few to step into a time-warp that told a unique story of 20th century Chicago ---- from Lee's point of view.
Kaitsu called me about this.Pretty neat collection. Took the text from Wheels of time netsite.
Read the story and watch all the eight videos. Very very sick.HERE
As the Autumn leaves started to turn yellow and the cold and moist seawind started to push Mr. Captain Chaos deeper into the mainland, the Dragonfly felt the needs of our Captain. Captain needed to get out of town.Helsinki had the wrong kind of winds. Dragonfly felt a bit unsure because Captain had not been in the needs of her services for the whole summer. But now,the wind behind him he was ready to go.Somewhere further away from the coast. In the process of getting on the road Captain thought its gonna be just another routine ride,get some gas and you're on the way. But Dragonfly had different agendas.
As the Captain was getting closer Dragonfly used all its powers to lure the Captain into some oily spots of the yard.Then she let the Captain think that everything was cool and started without any problems.Captain hopped on screamin' for some open road air put the oily boot to the clutch and slammed the first gear.Right that time the Dragonfly decided to teach our Captain a little lesson about Suicide clutches. The inland highways and the open road air turned into painful bushes and tree branches as the Dragonfly flew trough the yard into some trees.Captain flew some more and found himself somewhere else than on top of the Dragonfly and decided not to take the dragonfly anywhere near the inlands this year. If there is one thing that Dragonfly knows about motorcycles its that a oily boot and suicide clutch dont really mix well together.
