BMW R nineT Custom / Zillers Garage

This BMW R nineT from Zillers Garage in Russia is hardly the ideal grocery getter or tourer, but the level of craftsmanship at play here is on another level. Zillers Garage is run by Dmitry Golubchikov.

There are rules in the English language that you’ve probably never been taught, but you know anyway: how to split apart words with infixes. But you’ve never been taught it because some of those infixes are words you probably shouldn’t use in front of your high school English teachers — via Youtube

Antler House Restoration / Andrew Geller + Architecture AF

In 1968, architect Andrew Geller, best known for his mid century beach houses, designed a strange little home in East Hampton, New York. The Antler House, as it was called, featured a pale wood facade marked by geometric windows and an asymmetrical roof, and a generally peculiar shape that seemed to follow no rule of any kind.

Over the years, new owners of the home added more traditional features to the house, muting Geller’s whimsical vision. Now, the house’s original architectural quirks are once again getting their due thanks to a restoration Brooklyn and Virginia-based design studio by Architecture AF – via Curbed

Design, History

Ducati 250 Mach 1 restoration / Back To Classics

Finding a Ducati 250 Mach 1 is not easy: a huge number of Mach 1s were converted for racing use, and subsequently wrecked. So when Harné Heuvelman was recently asked to restore an original 1966 model to its former glory, he was very enthusiastic. Along with his father Harm and engineer Niels Schoen, Harné runs Back To Classics in the Netherlands, which is one of the go-to workshops in Europe for vintage Ducati enthusiasts – via Bike EXIF
