The Drayton Porkchop 1972 Harley Davidson Sportster The Build: Benny Thomas of BoneShaker started with a 1972 ironhead Sportster frame and motor, the bike needed to be low and fat so he laced a sportster drum brake rear hub to a 16” rim and a later sportster front disc hub to another 16” rim and shod them both with Firestone ANS tyres. A race bike with chunky tyres - what’s all that about? Depends what you are racing on…if you are slamming a quarter mile on a dirt track this bike would be pretty handy. To keep with the race vibe we went for clip on bars and shortened the forks by 4” and strutted the rear end, Benny Comments… "I hate master cylinders on handlebars so I set up a master cylinder operated by a cable lever, I didn’t want this set up totally hidden, I like to see working parts, I like to see the cables - the parts that make the bike stop and go."

Journal — Iron & Air Magazine I think we all take ourselves a little too serious sometimes. I mean, we play with toys for a living! Granted, not all toys are alike. Take this one in particular.

The 10 Best Games for Learning About the Stock Market Much like skydiving, playing the stock market is not an activity you want to learn through your mistakes. Fortunes are made and lost all the time by people who think (or thought) they had a handle on stock trading. If you have a few million you can afford to lose, or you're investing with someone else's money (you're a bank, in other words), by all means, jump right in. But for the other 99%, we recommend simulating the experience of stock market investing first, to learn what to do and not do with your hard-earned cash. Here are the 10 best games to help you do that. WeSeed:While some of the games on this list may be more concerned with purveying entertainment than education, WeSeed's No. 1 goal is to teach people about the stock market and take the fear out of investing.

Occhio Lungo After a long interlude, here is the follow up to the People of the 2013 Irish Rally and the Pre WWI bikes on this year’s rally. In addition to the swell guys and gals and superb early bikes, the Irish always has a great selection of flat tank bikes (made up to around 1927). The roads chosen for the daily tours are well suited for these machines, with great winding one-laners mixed with a few 40-50mph routes that connect the twisty bits. A Norton Model 18 like this one with 500cc, OHV and Webb front forks is very capable of humbling riders on bikes made 20 or 30 years later.

Gulpiyuri Beach - A Stange Beach in the Middle of a Meadow Tucked away into a small inland hollow, right in the middle of a meadow, Playa de Gulpiyuri is one of the most amazing beaches in the world. We’ve certainly featured some unique places here, on Oddity Central, and even a few incredible beaches, like the hot water beach of New Zealand or California’s glass beach, but none like the beach of Gulpiyuri. Located near the charming town of Llanes, on the northern coast of Spain, Gulpiyuri Beach is unlike anything I have ever seen, or even imagined existed outside of fantasy books or fictional planets. Imagine walking over 100 meters from the sea shoreline and stumbling over a small charming beach right in the middle of a green meadow.

How to Build Your First Surfboard Deciding on shape is probably the most important part of making a surfboard. Thrusters and longboards have their place, but many surfers are riding designs which do not maximize the fun possible on the type of waves being ridden. Often it seems the image a surfer thinks he will portray is affecting his design decision. The best way to simplify the decision is to ride as many different surfboards as possible.
