Colorado Z71 Surf Truck

Hurley and Chevrolet have teamed up and designed a special edition truck for surfers. The Colorado Z71 is designed to get surfers and their gear around with functionality and style, it easily takes on challenges that surfers face at remote locations thanks to a lifted suspension, 17-inch wheels and all-terrain tires. It also has details such as a waterproof RFID wristband (a bracelet you wear in the water that will unlock the truck), waterproof seats, a rollout Thule drying rack and storage underneath a custom Bimini-style soft cover, rooftop racks, and its own WiFi hotspot for keeping tabs on navigation and even wave forecasts. Still in concept stage, the truck was designed to gauge public reaction before possible production.

The co-founders, David Borras and Valeria Libano are two irreverent artists/mechanics doing something no one else does, mixing materials like a spicy curry of metal and leather. The resulting mix of raw finishes and immaculate detailing is strangely compelling. Check out the website for the full list of their builds....

YAMAHA SR400 | BY GASOLINE CUSTOM MOTORCYCLES

Our custom motorbike crush today is a nice simple machine from Sydney workshop, Gasoline Custom Motorcycles. The guys have really kept it simple, eliminating most stuff from the rear end and replacing the standard heavy exhaust, giving the bike a freedom of lightness. The utilitarian character of the bike was achieved by adding big knobbly tires and a rough-round-the-edges finish. Check out their website for more custom builds....
