Preparing for “The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride” on sunday.

Best Bike DGR 2014This Sunday (the 28th of September 2104) it’s time for “The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride” to raise awareness about prostate cancer once again.
Find out more at www.gentlemansride.com

I built this award for “best bike” that we are going to present at the finish line of the ride (at Nytorget in Stockholm, Sweden). Go there at around 12:30- 13:00 if you want to vote for the best bike and support the research about prostate cancer.

Today Jens also got interviewed for Swedish Radio P4 about the ride, here’s a link if you want to listen to that (it’s in Swedish). Interview

Wheels Nat’s 2012 at Hågelbyparken

Today we went to Wheels Nat’s at Hågelbyparken near Hallunda south of Stockholm. It would seem that a few other people had the same idea, we had to sit in traffic for over an hour just to get to the parking lot from the freeway. There’s not much to say about the day other than it was very hot and only about ten bikes to look at.
But here’s a few pictures I snapped anyway.
I love this car! It’s an Austin Seven and it’s tiny 🙂
Casper and Smeden like to hug each other a little bit too long.
The coolest bike at Wheels Nat’s, an old Husqvarna twin. Beautiful!
John Mathisen’s beautiful Harley, garage built awesomeness!
The same Harley, the boys are discussing how Casper burned his hand on his Triumph engine.
Smeden And Casper are looking at womens clothing?

There weren’t that many cars that I really liked but if you’re in to old yankee doodle then there was a lot of original cars at the meet. This paint job was incredible though, glistering in the sun and deep as the ocean.

Mods VS. Rockers 2011

Finally I got around to sort the photos I took during the 3rd of September 2011 when Mods VS. Rockers was held in Stockholm, Sweden. It was a really nice day with lots of cool bikes, scooters and awesome people. The two “sides” met on two different locations in Stockholm in the morning and met up on opposite sides of the bridge S:t Eriksbron. A bit of heckling and shouting profanities went on for a while, then Mods and Rockers passed each other and obscene hand signs commenced. The two sides drove around the block and met up a few minutes later and cruised through the town of Stockholm together out to Vinterviken where a tug of war was held (oddly enough the Mods won!).
Everyone got a chance to walk around and have a look at all the great bikes and scooters and sit down for a coffee before we all drove in to town and Nytorget, after that some people went on ride-outs and others went home to get ready for the party later that evening.
You can see all the pictures in the gallery below, leave a comment if you like them and also please like Piston Cult on facebook.
