Old Empire Motorcycles The Snipe

Our Friday custom motorbike crush comes from Old Empire Motorcycles, a workshop known for their heritage aesthetics. The striking build named "Snipe” started as a 2014 Yamaha SR400, it was striped down to its essentials and fitted with carefully engineered handmade components. From 3D machined yokes and switch gear to the hand beaten aluminium front and rear cowling, this beauty has been removed of all the modern frivolities and resculpted into a streamlined racer with Old Empire´s usual attention to detail and classic styling.

ORU KAYAK | ORIGAMI FOLDING BOAT

We have seen the ancient Japanese art of origami applied to sheets of paper for creating birds, plants and other shapes, but we never thought we´d see it applied to a real size kayak! The Oru Kayak by designer Anton Willis is a compact and lightweight(25 lbs) boat which folds like an origami and fits into a small suitcase.
