No doubt you might have heard about the London 2012 Olympics logo outrage (£450K, caused epileptics to have fits while watching the commercials – allegedly). Can’t say I’m down ‘wid the kids’ about the current fascination with lairy graphics, 80’s-retro flourescent colours and fakey punk stuff…but whatever, the real crazy thing is that by the year 2012 the trend will be way over….does anyone really think this logo is timeless?
I think the concept behind a ratbike is a home-modified mish-mash bike; push or motor. Not entirely sure, but I have to say Mad Max blew me away as a teenager, so there’s something I’m liking about these renegade warriors. I certainly wouldn’t argue with a dude riding this….
This badboy lost its seat somewhere…

Driving back from somewhere random recently i saw the Brooklands racing track, with Mercedes-Benz World next to it….had a butchers….apart from the faint aura of tarted-up showroom this place was cool. Amongst the exhibits were;
-this tasty lineup of Mercs;
-this aerodynamic buck from the 300SL-based racingcar;
-and this outrageous 600Pullman, owned by Dictators and rockstars alike;
About time chrome made a comeback!
Alas, someone just bought the beast…..It will be sadly missed..
