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.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
