This week we have roughly equal parts weird and wonderful, including a motorcycle formerly owned by Nicholas Cage and a 1 of 700 Free-way by HM Vehicles – which we only very rarely see come up for sale on eBay.
The Free-way was sold between 1979 and 1982, with the factory offering it with a 12 or 16 horsepower gasoline motor, or a 4 horsepower electric motor. Looking back on the designs now, they were clearly ahead of their time – especially with the electric drivetrain option.
These motorcycle boots by Deus Ex Machina are amongst the toughest boots we’ve come across recently. They’re made from 2.00 – 2.20mm rough-out Buffalo hide, they have a handmade Goodyear-welted sole with double-row stitchdown and a USA-made steel toe up front.
This leather iPhone case by Apogee is the most tasteful case design I think I’ve ever seen, it’s made of a single piece of stone-oiled leather and is completely stitchless. It’s held together by 3 folds and one tuck and is said to develop its own unique patina over time.
