Arrows Mercedes G-Wagen

Based in Kawasaki, Japan, Arrows is a workshop brilliantly updating classic Mercedes with their "Classic Line" treatment. They specialize in returning the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Mercedes G-Wagen back to their purest form, as seen by this beautiful example below. Arrows does not delve into upgrading the engine for more performance, but buyers are able to choose from donor cars. From a simple restoration to a full-fledged tear-down, they will incorporate a bespoke plaid interior, upholstery, and reconditioned components, alongside a high-quality, period-correct Pueblo Beige paint job and even old-school wheel caps. The interior also sees a minimalist overhaul, adding the distinctive check pattern cloth trim to the seats and door cards. Arrows sources the material from a German manufacturer, keeping it as close to the original as possible. If interested, Arrows will find you a solid Nineties truck and give it the same makeover as this wagon to throw it back to the earliest civilian models.

EL SOLITARIO CUSTOM MOTORCYCLES

We have featured many custom motorcycles in the past, but none as crazy as the El Solitario conversions. 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....
