How much is that doggy in the window?

Old Hardware Store

– on our return drive from a weekend away we stopped at the hipster town of Three Oaks MI. In one of the dusty window displays at an old hardware store stands a couple of vintage bikes. A 750cc Triumph Bonneville and a Norton Commando. I’ll have a 1/2lb bag of 6d nails please!

Vintage voyagers

Deciduous Tribute

By saw and plane…

Leroy Mize, 73, of Oskaloosa, crafted a 1965 Triumph Bonneville motorcycle out of oak and walnut. Spending over 1,000 hours cutting and piecing together the wooden Bonneville, it is an exact replica of his actual racing motorcycle.

Contrast

Wall Art | this would make a nice graphic for a cool warehouse apartment wall. High ceilings and brickwork with concrete floors. Indeed you could probably roll the Bonnie into the flat up on the freight elevator..
