Story and photos in MCM magazine – teaser

I’m very excited about the next issue of the swedish custom magazine MCM on September 16th, it will feature a story and pictures on the Honda Café Cross 🙂 This has come together because of the talented Nicki Twang, who has taken the pictures – very thankful for that Nicki!

Just can’t wait to see it…

1979 HD Sportster Bobber – the beginning

Bought a 1979 Harley Davidson Sportster this spring, and stock bikes is not my thing 😉 Rode it for some miles on a few different rides, and suddenly it lost power… On my way to a business meeting of course. Got to pick it apart last week, and the result was a broken rear piston. The cylinder was ok, just needed a small cleaning up. It looks to have been very heated, and i suspect a air-leak from the manifold… New parts have arrived, doing a change on both cylinders with new pistons, rings, gaskets and manifold seals.

During the last days I have decided what to build of it, at least this time… Turning it in to a Bobber. Went nuts on eBay for a couple of days now, and ordered  two 16″*3.5 fat spoke wheels, rigid struts, two Shinko 16″*5.00, -4 under Springer and a brake for the springer. I have not decided for any color yet, but thinking of doing something very different… I will show you as it comes along 😀

From the day after tomorrow I will take three weeks vacation, so there might be little new things here.

Have a good summer!

Found out that someone has made a video of Nicki Twang’s pictures of my Honda Café Cross and put it on YouTube… Very humble that they have spent time doing that 🙂

Ducati 600 Super Scrambler – photos and write-up

The Super Scrambler started its life as a 1995 Ducati 600 Super Sport, barely driven with only 17000km on the speedo. The gastank, headlight and engine protection is painted in a beautiful brown from Audi, Ipanema Brown. I handcrafted the seat with two different leathers, and stiched it up with brown thread to match the paint. To make it look more right the frame has been cut some inches at the rear, but still there is space for a passenger 🙂 Mounted cross-style handlebars, with new grips and mirrors. 7″ headlight and LED-rear and indicators. It now sits on Continental TKC 80, 120/70-17 front and 140/70-17 rear. The old brown leather saddlebag really topped it all of 😉

The Scrambler rides quick and nimble, but sounds mean with the new exhaust 😀 Perfect urban cruiser, but still rides well in the countryside…
