If there was ever a bike that looked like it was built for Anime duty, it’s Auto Fabrica’s new “Type 18” custom build for BMW Motorrad. Half moto, half android, the Type 18 is both beautifully simple and starkly futuristic. It uses 3D printing technology, as well as handcrafted aluminum pieces, on top of the R NineT Scrambler’s frame. The artful curvature of the matte black exhaust pipes contrasts nicely with the angular 3D printed front turn signal elements and fairing pieces. The thin seat and floating taillight are both custom made by Auto Fabrica, allowing the huge rear wheel to have almost a life of its own. The fact that BMW Motorrad approved of this build just goes to show the skill and style exhibited by the UK custom shop.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
