The Man on a Saddle

.





On his website  Guzzi Galore , journalist/reporter, traveller and writer Paul van Hoof (1964) says: “When I left Holland in May 2005, I had 12,000 euro in my pocket, enough for a year’s trip. In the end I travelled for three years, recounting my adventures on my website, and many people helped me.” Now his three-year trip from Dead Horse (Alaska) to Ushuaia (Argentina) has been turned into a book, recently published, entitled “The Man on a Saddle”, with the subtitle: “60,000 km of freedom”. His co-star is Guus, a vintage Moto Guzzi V7 from 1975, which took Paul along astonishing roads, in the footsteps of Che Guevara, through Argentine deserts and Bolivian mountains, in the most extreme conditions.

1964 Norton Cafe Racer

.





This fine Cafe Racer Norton is constructed from a slimline Norton frame dated 1964 and a later c.1974 850cc Commando engine. We are not sure when the bike was constructed however it looks to have been UK registered 21st May 2010. A very high quality build there are many new parts on the bike and a few nice modifications that have been made. Fitted with a very nice, but a bit worn alloy fuel tank the bike also has Commando front forks and mag wheels. It has just received a full service in our own workshop and been fitted with a new battery. Supplied with a MoT until Nov. 2017 and the UK V5C logbook this a very fine looking and great running / riding bike that has obviously received much recent restoration work. View more HERE

Moto Guzzi Airtail

.








With a name like "Death Machines of London" one does not expect (or want) a delicate approach to designing custom motorcycles, and their newest creation is no exception. Built out of the remains of a 1981 Moto Guzzi Lemans MK2, the Airtail is as idiosyncratic as a bike can be, yet in its design one can palpably feel the care the team has put into making something its owner can call one of a kind.

The Adelman House

.









The Kubala Washatko Architects firm has renovated a Frank Lloyd Wright house near the city of Milwaukee, adding a pool house that was informed by the home's original site plan. The Adelman House is located in Fox Point, a Milwaukee suburb that is bordered by Lake Michigan. It is situated on a partially wooded lot with a ravine. The family dwelling was built in 1948 for a young couple, Albert and Edith Adelman, and their three sons. Today, the 2,600-square-foot (242 square metres) home is still occupied by members of the Adelman family. Via : dezeen.com
