Regardless of your argument on whether a three-wheeler is a motorcycle or not, you can’t deny that the 1984 Honda ATC 70 Three-Wheeler was probably one of the greatest thing the Japanese marque has rolled out in the 80s. While the performance offered by the ATC 70’s 72 cc, four-stroke engine is definitely not something to shout about, it is by no means a toy ride. On contrary, it is a full-fledged three-wheel motorcycle that comes complete with an automatic clutch, adjustable throttle, an upper design that was a familiar sight of the 80s Honda motorcycle, and also, fat, knobby tires that makes this the ideal beginner ride that to take on the beaten trails.

Last year was the year of the supposed future as foretold by Robert Zemeckis. Though we didn’t quite get flying cars, self-drying jacket or holographic billboard, at least hoverboard was kind of real and so was the unforgettable self-lacing Nike Mag shoes worn by Marty McFly. Thanks to the enhancement in battery and motor technology, Nike Mag is real and in 2015, a functional pair was hand-delivered to actor Michael J. Fox who played the young McFly in the hugely successful Back to the Future trilogy. In 2012, a version of this iconic Nike Mag was created and put up for auction to benefit Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research and today, Nike and The Michael J. Fox Foundation has come together once again to announce the release of Continue reading Good News! 2016 Nike Mag Can Be Yours And Here’s How To Get It
If you are still in the process of cobbling together a real working The Dark Knight’s motorcycle AKA Batpod, well, we have news for you. You can put away your tools cos’ the real deal is going under the hammer. Which means, if you have piles of cash to burn, you may have shot at owning it and save yourself the agony of building one.

So you can be assured that it is rideable, though its road-legality is questionable. Continue reading Batpod From The Dark Knight Trilogy Is Set To Go Under The Hammer
The forties wasn’t the happiest decade for the world, but still it brought us Winston Churchill, Velcro, Tupperware, Jeep, and than there was this relatively unknown but awesome Jetsons kind of futuristic vehicle called GM Futurliner Vehicle Carrier. Futurliners started as purpose-built vehicle for the 1939 New York’s Fair and they were used in GM’s Parade of Progress campaign, touring North America to educate the masses on subjects like jet travel, agriculture, traffic engineering, stereos, televisions and even microwave oven. Continue reading This 75 Year-Old Futurliner Still Look Fantastically Futuristic Today!
Remember that super sexy Lotus C-01 motorcycle that’s not built by Lotus? Only 100 units of this fine example were built, which makes it one of the super rare two-wheeler, if not the rarest, in the world. If you weren’t one of the hundred lucky folks who managed to secure one, here’s another golden opportunity for you to do so; only this time, it is going to be both easy and difficult to obtain. In a way, it is easy to obtain because this particular immaculate example, which apparently has never been ridden, will be going under the hammer at Monterey Car Week. Continue reading Never Ridden 2014 Lotus C-01 Motorcycle To Go Under The Hammer
More often than not, the protagonist’s car in a movie can easily turn into an iconic ride, but in the case of The Fast and the Furious, Paul Walker’s character, Brian, 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse didn’t quite turn iconic for reasons most car lovers know. Not that 4G63 is any bad, but seriously, a front wheel drive machine can be hardly called a sport car for some. We can’t argue with the design though, but the 10s car and American Muscle with “too much torque” kind of stole the show. No, wait. Actually, there was another car that managed to steal bits of the limelight; the 1995 Volkswagen Jetta, Jesse’s (played by Chad Lindberg) ride which he lost to Tran’s Honda S2000 in a drag challenge. Whenever I see that scene, I can’t help but to shake my head. Man, what the hell was that boy thinking? Going up against a rich dude’s ride and a S2000? Gosh… Continue reading 1995 Volkswagen “Fast & Furious” Jetta Sold For $46,200 At Scottsdale Sale
Mankind desire for concealed camera is not new, but do you know, human race has been experimenting and making concealable camera as far as back as 1800s? That’s 19th century, which at that point, was almost 300 years since the invention of camera and an era where camera was still a rather clunky device. The Hegelein Watch Camera, circa 1895, is one example of a concealable camera that disguises itself as a pocket watch, another device which was popular among the gents at that time. Hegelein watch camera was an American copy of the earlier British Lancaster watch camera and was sold in the U.S. at 5 bucks a pop. Continue reading If James Bond Lives in 1800s, This Pocket Watch Camera Would Probably Be His Spy-cam of Choice
We won’t be letting the cat out of the bag with this one. In fact, this has nothing do with secrets. Instead, in the case of the Pico Handmade Cat Shoulder Bag, the cat here is the bag. Before you look away in disgust, thinking it was work of a taxidermist, well, it is not. Believe it or not, this incredible life-like cat bag was handmade by a Japanese housewife from the ground up. So, no. There was no cat carcass involved. Phew. Not that taxidermy is in anyway wrong; just that the idea of carrying a dead animal around would be rather, how do you say? Yikes? Continue reading Japanese Handmade Cat Bag is Incredibly Life-like and Adorable
Here’s another technology ‘predicted’ by the movie, Back to the Future II, that’s coming true. No. Not the hoverboard, though we have seen quite a few variations of that. Next to make the Back to the Future II prediction check boxes is the self-lacing Nike Power Mag. Wait. Didn’t Nike already made that in limited edition back in 2011? Yup. They sure did, but those are without the legendary “power laces” aka self-lacing technology, which brings us to the biggest news of October 21, 2015: “Power lacing” Nike Mag is real! It is so real that, Nike has chosen this day to gift Michael J. Fox, who played Marty McFly in the Back to the Future trilogy, a pair to keep. Continue reading Holy Smoke! Nike Announces Real Back to the Future II’s Self-lacing Nike Mag!
If you have a penchant for luxury timepieces, love American muscles and have boatloads of money, then you might want to check out the Baume & Mercier Capeland Shelby Cobra 18K Red Gold Flyback Chronograph. The one-of-the-kind timepiece is slated to go on the block at Antiquorum in New York City on December 9, 2015, with all proceeds going to Carroll Shelby Foundation, so you’d be doing the society some good with your hard earned money. Personally, I can’t see anything in common between the two brands, but since it is for charitable cause, I shall dispense with my (probably very) unpopular views.
