Hiro's Triumph

Untitled by Vespamore !
Untitled, a photo by Vespamore ! on Flickr.
Taken late October 2011

Hiro is a Japanese guy hailing from the Kobe area of Japan, who came over to London to live & get closer to the vintage UK motorcycle scene. He couldn't have chosen a more appropriate place to work than Lewis Leathers on Whitfield Street; the UK's oldest manufacturer of motorcycle clothing www.lewisleathers.com


Hiro bought the Triumph within one month of his arrival in the UK in 2004. It has just completed 250 miles since it's recent refurbishment, including all new valves, piston rings & profesionally re-profiled tappet followers, as well as re-painted tank, new seat etc etc. Check out Hiro's own blog 'Rustless' by Mode By Rockers for a closer look at his cherished Triumph www.modebyrockers.blogspot.com/


The shots in this series have all been taken with my Olympus OM10 on 35mm film (1600ASA). See full set here http://www.flickr.com/photos/gs3vespa/sets/72157627877853095/

Rollerburn



Heard about this via Davida's newsletter www.davida.co.uk

The guys from Sideburn Magazine are putting together a very unique and unmissable event, ROLLERBURN in Nottingham on Saturday 19th November 2011. " Incorporating a full roller derby match followed by the worlds first ( and probably last) Indoor Roller Drag Race: three lightening fast racers riding three motorcycles towing three fearless roller girls. One winner. "
TT hero, Guy Martin is confirmed as one of those lightening fast riders and Davida are supplying extra special rollerball helmets for the fearless roller girls.

See Sideburn's vid here for taster http://vimeo.com/31017781

Panton chair

Taken last year with my OM10 on 35mm film.

I have a passion for excellent design (furniture & art as well as classic vehicles) & have been selling modern furniture in London since late 1998, the last 6 years I've spent working at Geoffrey Drayton www.geoffreydrayton.com A few design heroes of mine would be Hans Wegner, Vico Magistretti, Joe Colombo, Piero Lissoni, Arne Jacobssen, Poul Kjaerholm, Oiva Toikka, Poul Henningsen, Charles & Ray Eames, George Nelson to name a few....

Being in the privileged position I am; working every day with such great design is pretty gratifying. I'll try to add the odd piece about modern furniture to the blog from time to time.

Starting with the Panton chair...

Below text from Vitra's website, click link for more info http://www.vitra.com/en-gb/home/products/panton-chair-classic/overview/

Verner Panton was one of the most influential designers of the 1960s and ’70s. Born in Denmark, Panton relocated to Switzerland in the early 1960s. He became known for his original and imaginative designs in the fields of furniture, lighting and textiles. Installations such as the legendary ’Visiona’ exhibition demonstrated Panton’s masterful use of colour, a hallmark of his work.

In addition to his experiments with shape and colour, Verner Panton was enthusiastic about the design potential of plastic, a new material at the time. One of his ambitions was to create a comfortable, all-purpose plastic chair moulded in a single piece. Panton’s long search for a manufacturer led to his initial contact with Vitra in 1963. The Panton Chair, a collaborative effort, was developed with Vitra and finally introduced to the public in 1967.

Nice used ET3, taken with my Olympus OM10 on 35mm film during sunny October lunch hour - 2011. Another shot of same scoot here http://vespamore-uk.blogspot.com/2011/10/blue-et3.html
Cropped at the sides slightly to erase the neighboring modern plastic auto scoots in the bike bay.
