Scott Campbell Carves Tires

All That's Gold Does Not Glitter from Alessandro Simonetti on Vimeo.

“During the Karl Lagerfeld Pirelli calendar launch in Moscow, Renato Montagner, Creative Director of Pirelli P Zero, commissioned artist Scott Campbell to create two signature projects. To engrave a Pirelli tire and to design a special edition P Zero bike jacket by Dainese. In the summer of 2011, Campbell began working on these pieces in his Brooklyn studio in New York.”

Labor Day Weekend Impulse Buy

Bought this off a guy it CT on eBay Buy It Now for a super deal. 
1985 Puch Maxi Sport LS 2 Speed. Here it is as I found it in the seller's mower shed.

A little dusty with a few dings but complete.
Hippie sticker was the first thing to go!
Sometimes I wish I could crawl up inside my mopeds and build a cozy little home...

then again, too much of a good thing might be deadly.
Pristine ZA50 tranny! In the process of rebuilding with new pucks and oil seals.

As she sits now in my Brooklyn apartment. Had a set of EBRs and a 
racer seat sitting around. Shocks are from my TSM

I have a Techno Boss pipe lying around too. Gonig to set this up with a 
70cc K Star and 15mm Bing for Beth to ride till I finish her Rigid Bobber Maxi.

Might have to go with the natural Bandit / Trans AM theme for this build...

Gila E50, 24 Mikuni, St. Ripper Mock-Up

This set up is going on the mini magnum. Just need to order a CDI and
do the case matching and port chamfering for the Gila.

This is Beth's rigid which will be the new home of my Polini ZA50 with
the Rev-Run pipe. My ZA50 is running super strong and will be a blast
on the rigid maxi.
