Vintage “Beamer” motorcycles that are decades old still run today, and they still thrill on urban streets and open country roads, but there aren’t many legendary R51s left (only 18,000 were made), and Thrive Motorcycle based in Indonesia has just restomodded one to bring it to the modern age. Using the original engine and frame of a 1951 R51, Thrive crafted and modified new parts that were missing from the original, making it fresh but still keeping a vintage look. First off, the big fenders are no more, giving the bike leaner look. There’s a big square fuel tank with a new paint scheme, hand-hammered aluminum on the rear frame cover, new suspension covers for the front fork, and a new tractor-style single seat that’s similar to the original but brilliant incorporates the LED brake light. The finished product still looks like a vintage BMW but unlike any you’ve ever laid eyes on.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

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.”
