When it comes to custom motorcycles, most of the options we see are modern bikes that have been rebuilt to give them a more vintage style and feel. Luo Hao at China’s Mandrill Garage—arguably one of the best bike builders in Beijing—chooses to go in a completely different direction by taking bikes and infusing them with a fair bit of the futuristic. Case in point, the Mandrill Garage Power Street Triumph T100 Racer you see here. The donor bike was a 2014 Triumph T100 Cafe Racer, a classic in its own right, that Luo immediately set to transforming into the retro-future style bike you see here. The rear end was scrapped in favor of a single sided swingarm from a Ducati 1098. The spoke wheels were replaced with gold Ducati wheels. The peashooter exhaust was ripped off in favor of a hand-built titanium setup. Motogadget electronics were fitted throughout. It also got a cool front number plate, carbon fiber sideboards and enough lights to create perfect visibility. If this is what the future looks like, sign us up.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
