So this beautiful piece of machinery followed me home yesterday. It will soon be transformed (reversably, it’s a very bike) into a Seattle Cossacks team bike. In theory I too will be transformed into a Seattle Cossack (maybe not reversably). Pretty crazy but it should be a lot of fun.

Trident Tracker

I don’t quite know why you don’t see more Triumph Triples as customs. They sound fantastic. I approve.

So I attended my first Seattle Cossacks meeting as prospective member (rookie) last night. It should be pretty nuts.

The One Moto Show

The Pre-Unit Triumph project that I have been working on for the last several years was invited to the One Moto Show. It should be a pretty good time. It’s a big show and there is always something really impressive there.

The B36 pile was apparently created in the late 1940’s by a tornado.

I have some New Mexico history savvy friends, anyone know what town / where this was?

Ian Boyd’s collection of 39 Vincent’s in Perth, Australia. I’m betting Mike Breeding know him.

If my brother Rob were a billionaire I suspect his car collection might look a little like this.

When I was 13 and Team Yamaha obsessed I would have been in love...

Death Head Jacket

I’ve posted one of these before. It’s a Japanese market piece. I’d love to have one but once you factor the exchange rate you could buy a motorcycle project with the same money.

From Dice. My wife isn’t feeling it. I’m sure my neighborhood association would really like it though.

GME Tank

Same tank. An original GME frisco’d Mustang built from the old Mustang scooter tooling. This one had a rough period in it’s life. After a stupid amount of time spent retunneling, repairing and rebuilding I hope to have it back in the breeze again soon.

Steam Plant

My brother Rob with my Dad’s model steam engine in the Ballard Steam Plant (circa 1906). The steam planet is now a museum open for tours. Pretty amazing place.
