Forkless Bike

Olli Erkkilä is a 28 y.o. chap from Finland, student in a Design School ; and he had quite a great vision when he created that "Forkless Cruiser"!

Go jump to his site, not only to check out that bike (and its construction process) in details, but as well his other creations, like that Solex go-ped shown on the left...

Amusingly, Olli loves design, hot-rods, 2 and 3-wheeled kustoms, and vintage vehicules... French ones!

We Choose the Moon

40 years ago, the Man set foot on the Moon.

I hardly imagine what could Armstrong and Aldrin feel, in their uncomfortable space suit, between excitement, fear, concentration, pression of the mission, during the few hours of their extravehicular activities...
To celebrate that anniversary, a beautiful website has been set online, featuring dozens of never seen before pictures (specially of the LEM construction and testings). Hace a look here : Web site's online for one year, don't miss it!

On the same theme, the brilliant Boston Big Picture made a special gallery : Remembering Apollo 11.

If, by chance, you can read French, don't miss the airline captain Jacques Darolles story on about his meeting with Buzz Aldrin on a Paris-Nice flight...

Finally, for those who still think all these pictures were staged on Earth, have a look at the footpath of the astronauts still visible on the surface of our satellite...

90.000 visitors!

It's a bit late that I finally post the ritual pin-up for the 10K milestone, once again one from Gil Elvgren...
90.000? Wow, the next one will be a big step!

As usual, thanks to all of you for your visits, ShamWerks is very far from the hit scores of the majors blogs, but anyway, it has its used customers!

As usual again, sorry for the lack of updates on this site...

And as usual once more, I'll tell you I prefer write complete, useful, documented articles, instead of a single picture stolen from an other web site, without even a small comment... That's the way I do it, sorry for those who do not appreciate.

Talking about article, get ready for some wood working on ShamWerks in the next few weeks... Some botanics as well, as well as some Japanese culture... I won't tell you more, I have a bunch of pictures of recent realizations I'm preparing backstage. icone smiley wink

Thanks again for your visits, support messages, donations on my bank account in Switzerland, comments... Thanks to all of you guys, I do appreciate!

Model wrecks...

Just a link to Martin Otto Lambert's website, who builds metal model cars from scratch... Well, actually, model car wrecks.
Have a special look at this 81cm. long 300SL Gullwing (one of my favourite cars evah, btw), built from the plans...
The details are freakin me out.

Derringer Cycles

A bike frame and a 49cc engines. Said this way, it sounds like a Solex... But come on, these ones have Hell of a style.
Have a look on Derringer Cycles, there are some pure jewels, with a look so 20's... He who would like to make me a $3500 worth present can contact me for my color scheme choice. icone smiley wink
