Beautiful Wooden Bikes..

13 06 2011

The hand-built WRD-11 mahoganny bike built by Sueshiro Sano has got to be the most beautiful.. flowing.. and well engineered bicycle in the wood bicycle category..

Not only is it made with more wood than other wooden bikes I’ve seen (including mahogany saddle rails.. seat.. handle bars.. and even rims).. It is so customized.. that because the seat post/tube is one piece (for frame strength/durability).. it needs to be measured and built according to your proper body dimensions.. No adjustments if you decide to shrink or grow..

Ballpoint Pen Tattoos..

Shohei Otomo is an amazing and very talented artist.. I love how he mixes the styles of  traditional Japanese art.. with Japanese comic book art (manga).. along with a dollop of art noir..

But what a lot of folks don’t know.. is that this guy uses a ballpoint pen to “ink” his subjects.. Check out this video of Shohei Otomo in action..

This VW Gets You 313 MPG..

27 01 2011

Via Auto Express..

The Volkswagen XL1.. the company’s third generation high efficiency vehicle.. now brings you over 300 miles per gallon..

Even with a standard/wider side by side seating configuration (versus predecessors’ narrower jet-fighter fore and aft seating).. It manages to stay slippy by staying nice and low to the ground..

Combine this with lightweight materials.. Airstream management.. And a diesel/electric powerplant.. And you get the magic mileage numbers..

Will this car or a near variant hit our roads soon? I’m hoping sooner.. Than later..

Here is some more info on the XL1..
