On today’s menu: an electric scooter, lowriders from LOWTECH, vintage camera lens bracelets, and the bike of the day.
Straight out of Estonia comes this little bad boy from Renard Speed Shop.
Renard Speed Shop owner Andres Uibomäe’s latest build is this Honda CB500T named the “Kuri Kuldnokk” meaning “Wicked Starling”. The bike started out as a German import that had been in a small accident. Broken triple trees and bent forks meant it wasn’t getting on the road again without some TLC but it had very low km’s and was well looked after.
Forget about flimsy-looking rides of the same ilk, this electric scooter from Works Electric looks Humvee-like in its construction if not its stature. At a top speed of 33MPH and a range of 36 miles, we’re talking about a scooter that can go the distance, and smooth out some potholes along the way.
I’m always struck by how LOWTECH just nails any car photography. From look and feel to soaking up and incorporating the background scene and architecture.
