Don't Be A Square :: Monkee 2-Stroke Racer

Well, in this case go ahead!  The Wrenchmonkees have crafted a beautifully square Yamaha RD400 2-stroke café racer.


The hard-lined body work and rectangular headlight blends tastefully with its boxy engine.   This has to be one of the most attractive uses of a boxy headlight ever.  Think you know a better one?  Let us hear it!

To see more on the build go here.


Mark your calendars - Born Free 4

Born Free 3 was an insane time.  Can only imagine Born Free 4 is gonna top it.  Same location and premise, just bigger and better this time.  Be there!


Deus Bali :: The Cycleworks Oberoi

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Bali and at the top of my list of things to do, making it to Deus in Canggu - the famed 'Temple of Enthusiasm' - was at the top of my list. Upon arriving in Seminyak, to my surprise there was a Deus there too!  According to their website, this location is described as, "As well as becoming the center for the Deus enthusiasm in Seminyak, the Cycleworks houses Deus clothing, hand built track bicycles, motorcycles and surfboards and it's very own Deus Cafe."  About the size of a small surf shop, this location oozed all things Deus and was my stop for many a great meal.
