Lo-ruiter Longboard

The Lo-Ruiter Longboard is the latest project by Joey Ruiter, a designer we have featured several times before, with innovative products such as the Growler City Bike, and the Inner City Bike. Lo-Ruiter is a modern twist on the traditional skateboard that creates the illusion of floating. The cutout shapes are a result of the low deck and wheel clearance, the holes allow you to break when you put your foot over them, and the generous size of the top allows for multiple positions, walking front to back, or riding switch. Its smooth, fast, super easy to carry around and lean against a wall.

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....
