Ever wonder what you could do with some spare time and a toolbox? Here’s just one little example from John Ryland, an ad guy by day and wrench-spinner by night. He took a crusty 1978 Yamaha XS 750 triple and stripped it down to the essentials. It is now the burly street fighter/café machine you see before you. And if you’ve never heard or ridden a Yamaha Triple, understand that this thing screams like a wild beast.
Fine timepieces like this Radiomir 8 Day Ceramica model by Panerai beautifully hide their technical superiority. The case is made of synthetic ceramic for an ultra hard, nuclear-proof matte finish. The hand wound movements operate on 21 jewels and have an 8 Day power reserve. The face is black, the buckle titanium, the strap buffalo leather. Model production limited to 500.
Holding the flashlight in your mouth and trying to swear your ass off at the same time is tough. This new hands-free light will allow your foul-mouth to flow freely, while the task at hand is lit up like an operating room. This high powered LED light features a fully adjustable head to put light right where it’s needed and it’s magnetic so you can stick it & get to work. You might not even need to swear, but please feel free.
Custom audio equipment is all over the net. So what (we ask) makes this iPod dock and amplifier stand out? Well, it looks like something your great uncle from Bulgaria made after the war for his ham radio club. But that’s not why. Amsterdam’s Thodio brand builds these mini HI-FI units by hand. The iBox is sturdy with metal handles and enough wattage to fill a room with sound. The rechargeable battery lasts 15 hours.
Prohibition was stupid. Bold southern gents were making backyard moonshine and running it all over the country on dirt roads late at night. The best of the best in those days was the family of Junior Johnson (NASCAR Legend). Today, they’re still following their old recipe, creating small batch corn-spirits in copper stills. But instead of loading the trunk of the car at midnight, they’re selling it above board, online. Much safer.
Stabbin’ cabin, shaggin’ wagon, whatever you want to call it, from Scooby-Doo to the A-Team, vans are wicked. Artist Brandon Ortwein re-imagined some of Hollywood’s best-known vehicles for his collection, It Would Have Been Cooler As A Van. And this art makes its way onto prints, stretched canvasses, and our favorite: sticky vinyl iPod & iPhone skins.
Sitting up in one of those airport shoeshine chairs can make a man uneasy. Not sure why, but it’s weird.

With a capacity of 1300 cubic inches, this pack is the perfect size for day trips and commuter hot-laps. Made of military-spec Cordura, it’s built to withstand bomb blasts. It opens super-wide for unrestricted access to your cargo. And whatever you can’t fit inside it, you can strap on—the exterior of the pack is a matrix of sturdy, military PALS webbing so you can keep your machete or water bottle (depending on the situation) close at hand.
A re-usable water bottle keeps lots of trash out of the landfill. But when you fill it with tap water, you’re depositing pollution into your own system. This bottle filters out 99.99% of tap water’s contaminants including chlorine, industrial runoff & heavy metals. One filter lasts up to a year and they’re easy to replace when you need to. Clean up your act.
When was the last time someone you know used a phone book? Your Aunt Mable doesn’t count. She’s 90. Seriously though, the Yellow Pages are a total waste of resources. Technology has made these heavy tomes of dead tree matter obsolete, but for some reason they are still being printed. Maybe if you opt out and your friends opt out, someday the Yellow Pages will just disappear.
