Another tiny custom CB100 out of SE Asia. This one from Deus Canggu in Bali.
Scott Flying Squirrel. Best bike name ever and innovative design too. Liquid cooling from the 1920’s. A couple of other Scott bikes here as well.
From Japan a TX650 custom. The lines of the subtly brown tank are dreamy.

Art, Images, and Design
A quick and dirty overview of the art of Sci-Fi. Lauren Panepinto who is the Art Director for Orbit Books shows you some examples and explains why and how they go about enticing you to pick up and read. Lots of links to lots of artists. Be sure to check the comments for even more art and links.
From the Long Now blog, a fine example of Panepinto’s two rules for great Sci-Fi art. Commentary on this split society image?
In the late 1970’s Andy Levin spent his non-working hours photographing the everyman experience of Coney Island. The NYT’s Lens blog brings 18 of these fine black and white photos back.
And now, many years later, Levin returns to Coney Island and publishes Coney Island Baby. Color photos of the same place, in a very different time. (NSFW – one aggressively nude image)
