Honda CB250 RS Scrambler / Mokka Cycles

This ice-cool little scrambler started life as a Honda CB250 RS, a plasticky but well-made runabout that was popular in the UK and Europe. You can still find them on the second hand market, and they’re a bargain at about US$1,500. That makes the air-cooled single perfect for a low-cost, big-value custom job — and Mokka Cycles have taken the bait. Mokka is the nom de plume of Árpi Bozi, a young programmer from Hungary — via Bike EXIF

Russo Residence / Wilton Manors, Florida

Built in 1957 and recently renovated by the multimedia artist Michael Jude Russo, the fever dream of a house is now on the market for $1.2 million. Russo, who is known for his upcycled sculptures, treated the home as his gallery, filling walls with art and shelves with sculptures. But he also viewed it as a canvas, where he could transform mundane features into works of art — via Curbed

Paulson Road Residence / John Vincent Anderson

Built in 1970, this eight-bedroom, seven-bath house in Illinois is a sprawling take on late-mid century design. Designed by architect John Vincent Anderson, the building — including a guest residence — measures 588 square metres, making it a far cry from the modest tenants of Usonian design. But many of the much-loved aspects of mid century style remain. 2109 Paulson Road is on the market now for $1,750,000 — via Curbed

Casa Lago Rupanco / Hsu-Rudolphy Arquitectos

Hsu-Rudolphy Arquitectos had one major requirement when designing a lake house on Rupanco Lake in Chile: All of the rooms in the house needed to have a clear view of the water.

This presented a challenge. The plot of land wasn’t large enough to build a house parallel to the water, which led the architects to split the home into two volumes and bend them at angles so they both catch glimpses of the lake — via Curbed

Gingerbread Xenomorph / Caroline Eriksson

Norwegian artist Caroline Eriksson just finished an epic sculpture of the xenomorph queen from Alien, made of gingerbread. The sculpture is built over an iron structure, held together with sugar syrup. The gingerbread is baked and then bent over curved surfaces while still warm to achieve the proper shape for each piece. The finished product is quite edible, but if not eaten, it will retain its shape for months — via Neatorama

V11 / Vagabund Moto

Austrian builders Paul Brauchart and Philipp Rabl from Vagabund Moto don’t want to be pigeonholed into one style. They’ve decided to change it up, since they often find themselves working with very similar donor bikes.

This latest boxer (V11) is just as slick as their previous work, but with a slightly more classic bent. According to the brief, this 1991-model BMW R 100 R needed to have a more vintage touch, with brown leather, and a place for a first aid kit. (Kits are a legal requirement in Austria, and the client lives in a region with strict policing) — via Bike EXIF

Sondern Residence / Frank Lloyd Wright

In 1939, Dr & Mrs Clarence Sondern commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to build a 84 square metre home in the heart of Kansas City. Almost ten years later, the second owners asked the famous architect to expand the home to its current 275 square metre. Now, the property — which is one of only two Wright homes in Kansas City — is on the market now for $1,650,000 — via Curbed

The Kudos / Andoversford, Gloucestershire

A disco bathroom and a secret underground annexe. This modernist property in Andoversford, Gloucestershire is rather interesting. Built in 2008 the house, known as The Kudos, is in Andoversford, which is just under 8 km from Cheltenham and sits in its own 6.5-acre parkland plot, with the house screened by a wooded area for privacy. If you fancy a dip in the disco bath or a substantial home in plenty of grounds, this one is up for £3,750,000 — via WowHaus

Codman Island Residence / Camden, Maine

The conversation pit may be making a comeback, but it’s still fun to see the seating areas in their original state. That’s the case for this three-bedroom, two-bath house in Camden, Maine. Located on Megunticook Lake in a forested area with two docks, the 150 square metre house boasts a unique octagonal shape. Inside, the 1967 design looks untouched, with wood-panelled walls and an open floor plan. If you’re looking for an untouched conversation pit — in a lake front location, to boot — 55 Codman Island Road is on the market for $799,000 — via Curbed

Double Trouble / Hot Chop Speed Shop

Squeezing two Harley engines into one chassis is a special form of lunacy, most commonly found in the drag racing scene in the USA. Despite the wealth of tuning talent in Japan, no double-engined Harley has been built there — until now. Kentaro Nakano of Hot Chop Speed Shop in Kyoto is the man who has broken the drought. The front engine is a 1969 vintage ironhead, and the engine behind it is a couple of years older — via Bike EXIF

Eppich 2 / Arthur Erickson

Arthur Erickson-designed Eppich 2 House in West Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada is up for sale. This is a bold statement from a significant Canadian architect. In fact, Eppich 2 was described as the architect’s most complete work by the man himself. Several decades on and this is still a design that stops you dead in your tracks. If you want to be just the second-ever owner of Eppich 2 House, you will need $16,800,000 — via WowHaus
