LOWBROW - good people, great stuff.

All too often businesses forget to give a little back, as they grow from backyard operations into successful enterprises. Not LOWBROW, whose new Alan Stedman designed MOTO MOUSE t-shirt profits are all being put to a reading charity for developing countries. Here's the blurb:
"The profit from every Moto Mouse shirt sold will be donated to Room To Read. Our goal is to raise $12,000 by the end of June 2011. This will build three reading rooms or libraries in developing countries and help impoverished children get an education and help break the cycle of poverty."
Kudos guys.

Honda RCB1100 & Replica

More 80's Bol Dor bikes - this time the Honda RCB's - the top two are factory originals, the bottom two are privateer CB1100's from the era. As Iggy Pop would say.... "Raw Power"!!
Personally I think these are cooler than the Dick Mann CB750's from the 70's that are so in fashion right now, but hey, that's just me....Here's also a couple of streetlegal WHITEHOUSE custom CB's from Japan being made along the same lines...super cool.

Classic Bol Dor Kawasakis - Eighties all over

These early eighties Harris and Martin framed bikes are still well maintained and raced today - I never tire of the Mean Green Machines.

The absurdly creative (and idyllic living) Deus team do the 70's.
