Husqvarna made just over 5,000 motorcycles in 1970. This Cross model is one of the iconic “red tank” 250cc, 4-speeds that was produced that year and purchased new by the one and only Dennis Hopper. He picked the bike up a year after the release of the classic motorcycle film Easy Rider, so no, it wasn’t one of the bikes from the film. But it’s still a great example of the bikes from that era—during the ’60s and ’70s, Husqvarna solidified themselves as one of the names to beat in the world of off-road biking by racking up 14 motocross world championships, 24 enduro world championships and 11 Baja 1000 victories—even without Hopper’s name attached to it. Hopper is the only known owner of the bike until it ended up at Husky Restorations, where Rob Philips brought it back into perfect working order. This Husqvarna—along with bikes like Steve McQueen’s 1939 Nimbus and the 1968 Bultaco Pursang that Peter Fonda rode in Easy Rider—will be auctioned off during Bonhams Collectors’ Motorcycles at the Barber Museum event on October 6.

Coffee-Scoop-Bag-Clip-IF2

Digging for the scoop in a bag of coffee means you’re going to get grounds stuck under your fingernails. Not clamping that bag shut when you’re done means those grounds could also end up all over your shelf. The Coffee Scoop Bag Clip solves both those problems. The stainless steel Coffee Scoop Bag Clip has a 1 tablespoon measuring cup on the end of the clip for easy scooping and sealing.
