This highly-caffeinated café racer built for a coffee company sure looks good. It’s a creative mix of CB250, CB360 and CB400 parts, and it took Christian Schwarzenlander of ExesoR Motorcycles over two years to construct.
Christian is a quality control engineer from Austria, and his attention to detail shows in every aspect of the build. (via Honda CB cafe racer | Bike EXIF)
According to the agent, this is a unique, detached house, built by the current owners around 30 years ago and set back around 200 feet from the road. As you can see, everything is spread out over a single floor, with plenty of glazing to bring in the light and plenty of open space for flexible living. But you rally can’t avoid that Japanese influence, which also has the effect of making this look pretty timeless too.

The house is located on the first row of lots and was designed so that the architecture acted like a frame to the view of the beach and the islands that are found in front of the house. The esthetic of the house celebrates the summer with modern curves that remind us of the Brazilian architecture of the sixties. (via House in Palabritas / Metropolis | ArchDaily)

If you follow the race scene, you’ll probably know the name Graeme Crosby. In the 1980s he won the Daytona 200, the Imola 200, the Suzuka 8 Hours, and the Isle of Man TT. And then promptly quit. He’s a national icon in his home country of New Zealand, and there’s a steady stream of visitors to his home and workshop in the rolling hills of Matakana, an hour north of Auckland.
Crosby might be retired but he’s as busy as ever, and age has not dulled his energy. He’s set up a bike building operation called New Generation Classics, and with the help of an ex-Britten mechanic, he’s turning out some very interesting resto-mods—like this 1974 Kawasaki Z1A built for a local enthusiast.
