1981 Land Cruiser FJ45

Another masterpiece to roll out of the FJ Company workshop. You’ve no doubt heard of the FJ40 Land Cruiser, one of the most iconic vintage 4x4´s on the road, and increasingly popular on the classic car circuit… but have you met the FJ45? The FJ45 Land Cruiser was produced in Japan from 1976 to 1986. This rugged workhorse could carry up to 13 people, and was designed to carry the troops (hence its nickname "the Troopy”). It was deployed as a commercial vehicle for militaries, businesses, schools, and governments around the world. The FJ Company team came across this particular FJ45 that served the Colombian National Guard, and restored it to perfection with some modern upgrades.

BLINK STEADY BIKE LIGHT

Blink Steady is another successful project funded by Kickstarter. The bike light is not only cool and elegant, it is also "clever", it turns on automatically and shuts off when you’re not riding! This is possible because of the integrated accelerometer that knows when you’re moving. It also features a light sensor that detects when it’s dark enough to turn on. Blink Steady is made from solid aluminum and is hard to steal, it is locked to your seatpost. A "no button"...
