New arrival: Caspers XS650

xs650 077Last saturday I went with Casper down to Norrköping to meet up with Erik from Kapten Mogade. Casper bought his cool looking Yamaha XS650. With 23″ front tire, poor mans hardtail and cool paintjob 🙂 The bike in the back is Eriks HD shovel.

xs650 079Here is a better pic of Erik´s shovel with suicide clutch and all. Since we talked alot about armadillos and badgers  with Erik he gave us each a pair of cool  Kapten Mogade goat skin gloves. They are real good ones, check out Kapten Mogade at http://www.kaptenmogade.com/

Swap meet Tumba and a day in the sun.

Suzuki GS450 TumbaYesterday I got up bright and early (I had to work late on Saturday so there was no beer for me) and went to a small but good swap meet in Tumba outside of Stockholm. I almost froze my fingers of on the way there at 08:30 but it got warmer before I went back. In the picture you can see my bargains tied to the GS450 I’m going to modify. I got home with two gas tanks and some handle bars, hopefully at least one of the items will fit something I’m building.
After I dropped the stuff off in the garage I was supposed to work but the day was way to nice to waste on working so me and Casper met up with some of the other guys at a coffee shop in Stockholm and went on a ride out to Plebs Choppers in Hässelby. Got a bit jealous of their club house, I wish we could have that kind of space. A couple of the guys went home after that but the rest of us went down to Calexico’s Restaurant in Hornstull to try out some of their Mexican food. Great stuff! Below is a picture of the bikes that were with us out to Hässelby, it’s quite a mix of styles 🙂

Swap meet in Stallarholmen

StallarholmenLast Saturday Me, Smeden, Elias and Casper went to a Swap Meet in Stallarholmen outside of Strängnäs. The weather was great and we found some nice parts for current and future projects. Here I have just bought the first finds for the day (I ended up getting four handlebars, one gas tank and one fender in total). The picture is taken by Janne Jakobsson, please visit his blog over at http://www.garagekultur.se/ (it’s in Swedish but there’s always Google translate for you foreign people).
Hopefully I will have some time to get out on the roads soon but today is a great sunny day and I sadly have to work 🙁
