The Honda Cub and Super Cub are some of the most produced motor vehicles in history, and they’ve been the focus of quite a few interesting conversions over the years. The Shanghai Customs Honda Cub Electric Conversion is a beautiful machine, but this build was about the brand trying to help with the inefficiencies and expenses of owning a motorcycle in China by producing an electric bike that’s as functional as its ebike counterparts while being built with significantly improved technology. The finished product, the Shanghai Customs eCub, is a sleek, mean-looking electric scooter decked out in black with a comfy seat, lack of visible cables, motorcycle-style throttle and 31 mile range at 31mph (they like to call it their 50:50 mark because it’s originally in km). Shanghai Customs is hard at work on version 2.0 of their eCub, along with prepping DIY conversion kits for international sale if you have an existing Honda Cub you’d like to convert yourself.

Xeric watches have always been bold, unique and stylish, but their newest watch is absolutely otherworldly. Xeric teamed up with NASA to create watches for the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11. The dial features a star map of the constellations surrounding Trappist-1. The grill references the ISS cupola window to give you the sense of looking out into space. The dome crystal is Hesalite, a material originally developed by NASA in the ’60s. Time is displayed with planetary hour and minute hands and stars on the sweeping seconds hand. It’s like wearing space on your wrist.
