I really wish I had some serious welding skills. I would open a custom motorcycle shop tomorrow. The attraction those bikes like the one below goes beyond an enthusiast attraction. It’s a damn addiction. Haven’t really mentioned it to many, but I bought a ’73 Yamaha XS650 that I plan on rebuilding, brat style. Not sure exactly what bike this is, but it looks like an 80’s Honda cb900. Could be wrong. Really digging the shortened rear end. Simplicity at it’s best.
I’m sure I’ve talked about Engineered to Slide before, but it’s so incredible what this guy is doing. The picture below is of a fully ground-up build of a Toyota Hilux. Meaning he started with absolutely nothing but a shape and skill in welding and fabrication. This is most likely a dream for most of us, as car enthusiasts. This whole thing was built out of a one-car garage. Props. It’s a really inspirational story.
I love the SR20 block chilling on a skateboard.
I have recently become obsessed with body drop on cars and trucks. It’s such a cool concept and it’s definitely very different from what we see in the “tuner” scene. A body drop is basically cutting the body away from the floor and raising the actual floor, welding it back in so the car looks ultra slammed. All of this work keeps the junk that would usually scrap along the floor in a normally dropped car, from doing so. It also keep your suspension components “useable”. Below are two polar opposites, but both with a body drop. The Chevy is actually from Japan. I think it’s such a cool look. The Bus is by far one of my favorite cars to see with a body drop. It almost makes it look like it’s hovering. I want one!
