Powder Monkees was a Chicago-based shop that specialized in custom motorcycles, part finishes and fabrication. Federal Moto also creates one-of-a-kind bikes. The two shops joined forces—Powder Monkees is now, officially, Federal Moto US—to create a custom beach tracker for one of Federal’s own who made the move to Florida. The goal of the collaboration was to create something small, simple and fun with a light color palette, minimalist parts choices and wild tires. What started as a 1978 Yamaha SR500 got a Yamaha TT500 tank, Honda TL250 headlight, Triumph mono-shock suspension, custom seat and framework, Mikuni carb, Metzler tires and the aforementioned fresh paint job. The end result, dubbed Sunshine State of Mind, is marvelous.

We’re sick of the quarantine beard, so we’re going clean shaven again. We’re doing it with a Henson razor. Precision-machined out of aluminum by a boutique aerospace manufacturer, this razor feels and works better than anything else on the market. It presents the blade at such a precise angle you can barely feel the shave. It’s uncanny. Most guys (and gals, they have a women’s razor) prefer drugstore cartridge razors because they’re plug ‘n play. Honestly, the Henson design ensures perfect positioning every time, and it’s cheaper and better for the environment long-term. Switch today.
