Here’s a series of great photos that Nuno Oliveira shot during Dean Dickinson’s Pool Party at the Pink Motel in Sun Valley, California that took place over the weekend. Beautiful stuff.
A product of the 80s, the only comparable bike in terms of radness would be the Huffy Sigma. The real selling point on this bad boy was the console which featured a speedometer, mileometer, stopwatch, a radio with three settings, and a soundboard. See that in effect after the jump,
Leave it to the Danes to meld bicylcle safety and fashion together. YAKKAY takes a traditional bike helmet and lets you choose between four different styles and countless fabric patterns to produce a helmet that is almost uniquely yours.
