Surf Racks, bikes and Deus
The bike at the top is the new purchase. To afford this luxury,(but also necessity to get to work cheaper) boards were sold from the quiver and my lovely wife Jill made some serious amounts of bunting for the queens jubilee. Its a mighty Suzuki Van Van 125cc and so much fun. It will become more fun for the local area of West Penwith when the board mounts are fitted allowing all a access surfing to some great spots here. The shots below are from Deus Bali who transform and restyle some unbelievable bikes. Take an old cb200 or a 1970's honda c70 and transform into into a sky blue thing of beauty with a surfboard rack on the side and you probably have the most reliable surf vehicle ever. Check the bikes out on the website or visit the Deus 'temple of enthusiasm' here. This place looks like a dreamland of all things creative; bikes, boards, fixies, art, photography, music, skating. It looks amazing and I know Joh `Eldridge passed through there not long ago, picked up a lovely new single fin by Ellis Erickson and surfed his casual brains out. You can take a video tour around the temple or just dream of the bikes they convert into works of art. Not sure if the Mighty Van Van will be subjected to such alterations but its certainly been fun so far and about to get funner.
