There’s nothing particularly special about the standard Kawasaki W650 motorcycle made in the late ’90s and early 2000s. It’s a conventional urban motorcycle that’s comfortable and well made. If anything, it does a good job of copying the Triumph Bonneville. But in the hands of 2LOUD fabricators, it can become a truly special ride. One wealthy customer had the Taiwanese shop do a custom build using the W650 as the base, and the end product looks nothing like the donor bike. It’s been transformed into a stunning bobber with custom fabricated parts like handmade drop bars, a beautifully arched stainless steel swingarm, a new exhaust system, big knobby tires, and a tank reshaped and repainted for a more vintage look. The rear fender has also been redone, along with a new slender seat. What was once just a good vintage bike has morphed into a rolling work of art.

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.”
