Footballers (soccer players) do more than just manage balls all day long. Some like to ride, and when Sevilla FC goalie Andrés Palop wanted a customized BMW K series “brick” bike (so labeled due to the big, rectangular engine block), he asked Bolt Motor Co. of Valencia, Spain to take on the project. The result is a modded K75 like no other. He wanted a version that was understated and clean with a dark ethos and red highlights. Simple, right? Well, Bolt went the distance by taking a 1991 BMW K75S and adding new and customized components like the K100 tank, Ducati Monster front suspension, powerful red Brembo brakes, and numerous parts from Motogadget to round out the clean look. Bolt also added a custom waterproof suede seat on top of the modified subframe and painted a bold “K75” in red on black mesh panels for effect. The rather stealthy and painstakingly constructed carbon fiber rear wheel cover adds more dark muscularity to this bike, and the final product exhibits just the right balance of sportiness and menace to a model that didn’t get the credit it deserved.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
