I'm excited! Wrench Monkees are cooking up a clothing line with the iconic Danish workmans clothes brand Kansas. Sh*t!!! All the cool men that I have learned from, and looked up to since i was 4 years old wore Kansas workwear! I am proud that Kansas will return from the ashes like the phoenix...

Unfortunately my old workshop Coffee & Pistons disintegrated after being butt f*cked by two different sets of landlords in under 6 month. The good news is that the Café Racer comunity in Copenhagen helps its wounded.
I was so lucky to be invited into the all new Nørrebro based workshop Wheels & Strings, mainly over crowded by British Motorcycles... Well I am the only japanies bike in the shop, so I am taking some flak from all sites these days - all fun and games.
Yesterday was the first outing of the seasson, and 12 bikes rolled out into the streets of Copenhagen to spread fear and panic in the "squares" strolling the city streets. Death and thunder, fire and lightning!!! Load as Thor fighting a battle over Middle Earth!!!

Motorious is located in the historic setting of Vesterbro, Copenhagen. The shop is an adventurous oasis stuffed with vintage motorcycle parts, obscure accessories and the junk you didn't know you need. We also stock a very fine selection of hand picked clothing brands, catering your needs for quality clothing, that will last for many miles on the open roads.

Russ Collins was in my opinion the leading motorcycle drag racer of the 1960s & 70s. When Honda introduced the CB750 Collins quickly started to race it on the drag strips with his dual and triple-engine modifications. In 1970 Collins quit his job and opened RC Engineering.
In 1973 Collins rode the Honda CB750 Triple in to the first seven-second quarter-mile on a motorcycle in Ontario, California. Three years later the same drag bike was destroyed at a drag race in Akron, Ohio, and landed Collins in hospital.
