Even the makers of Buell never knew what to do with their little 500-cc Blast. In 2010, they decided to junk it altogether. Well, London-based custom bike builders, Mac Cycles, took this perky (if under-appreciated) little powerplant and used it to make bikes that are not only cool looking, but won’t make you the butt of jokes by moped riders. They stripped away the plastic, let ‘em breathe a little deeper, and now the lightweight little 5-speed’s got some pull. Perfect for cruising, no jokes.

Made of woods like Chestnut and Ash, the rack is mounted to a sturdy metal tube frame.
This will be your favorite flashlight, if not definitely the coolest one you’ve ever owned. It looks rad – like a piece broken off the dashboard of a UFO. The sleek all-aluminum design and ultra-bright LED beam will guide you out of the darkness. But once your kids spot it and run off with it as their own little miniature light saber, it will be like all your other flashlights: impossible to find when you really need it.
