Matador Racer by Radical Ducati

We've been spending some time lately kicking tires around the garage and discussing how we wish Radical Ducati never closed their doors. We were talking about how to us, Radical Ducati embodies a modern interpretation of the cafe racer mentality in the 60's; strip off all the unnecessary bits only leaving on only the go-fast parts. Focus on that and a raw beauty emerges, leaving the motor and all the components fully exposed. Vulnerable even. The difference between Radical Ducati and the Ton Up Boys of yesteryear is that Pepo and Reyes had Ducati superbikes to work with.

There's loads of awe inspiring custom design, manly-man beards, no shortage of angle grinders and an endless supply of sparks. Sounds like these guys are on to something... (video below)

21 Helmets :: Good for your head

Style, art and safety are three disciplines that seem to run parallel tracks with precious few exceptions. Each discipline with its own merit seems incapable of bending to meet the other. Thor Drake believes otherwise. Thor (pronounced 'tore', like your jeans when you crash in the gravel...) is the proprietor of See See Motor Coffee Company in Portland, Oregon. He's also the organizer, curator and host of "21 Helmets", a show of historic and current motorcycle helmets that have been customized by a mix of local and international artists in the new-wave motorcycle scene.
