ESG has created one superb Yamaha bobber crafted from an XS650 Special from the ’80s. Normally, ESG specializes in customized cafe racers, but this divergence has paid off in terms of artistry. The black and gold moto looks both menacing and pageant-ready with its big solid disc wheels, gold and brass accents, and its mountain-bike suspension undergirded tractor-style seat. The brass footpegs, chain, pipes, and venting pop beautifully on the black monster, and it looks absolutely nothing like the donor bike from which it emerged. It’s clear EST has mastered another bike genre, and we wonder what’s next.

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?
