What does it take to turn a small vintage Japanese moto into a murdered out beauty that will turn heads today? About 550 hours of meticulous craftsmanship. French moto shop Panache Customs morphed the 1977 SX360 by using a classic wristwatch as inspiration. The iconic Rolex Daytona 16523 Zenith Phase Two. The gold, black, and silver Swiss chronograph translated to a motorcycle remarkably well, and the Smaug gets covered in black powder coat with golden orange and silver highlights. It also benefits further in the looks department with a new custom seat, new grips and handlebars, and polished aluminum mirrors. Performance enhancements were added to the bike to make it more performance-worthy, and the engine was fully restored along with a new custom master cylinder tank and a new exhaust. In the process, the bike dropped a substantial 57 pounds, which should prove itself on the pavement admirably.

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.
