Modifying an already great motorcycle takes a deft hand and a great degree of restraint, so as not to utterly bludgeon what made the bike so damned good in first place. Case in point, this BMW R65 by the folks at UK’s Auto Fabrica. Their latest offering uses a classic 1980 BMW R65, originally designated as a light touring bike, and turns it into the Type 10B, a moto that pulls off vintage even better than the original. Stripped down to the framework, the 10B gets a single rear swingarm and monoshock along with powerful Brembo brakes from the BMW r nineT, new electronics, new exhaust pipes, and a slick tank that’s been smoothed out for effect. Black spoked wheels, a suspended black suede seat gets framed by fins and a subtly ridged brake light element peeking out from underneath. It’s a worthy bike for getting around your urban jungle with the subtle kind of artistry we love.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
