So 2 things. 1, I want to work here and 2, after staring at this photograph for a few minutes I’ve decided that I think it’s a shot of the Shelby factory in the mid-1960s. As always though, this is pure conjecture so if you happen to be one of the guys in the photo, let us know where you were when it was taken.

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.
Michael Mundy, the proprietor of Steel Bent Customs, has a penchant for building some of the cleanest cafe racer motorcycles you’ll find anywhere. He tends to favour the Honda CB750 and has now got the process of turning the bike from a lumbering over-weight bike into an exceedingly clean, pure example of what a cafe racer can be if the builder sticks to the core of what the genre originally entailed.
