Painting

by Alain Panneton

As an artist, it is in our genes to try and surpass ourselves. We’re always trying to push the envelope and find new ways of expression.

Many of my fellow artists are tortured and split between the need to excel in their art, and the obvious, the need to get money to buy food and pay the bills. That is why it is sometimes fun to work on a simple and fast project that will still woo the crowd, but not make you go bonkers over its complexity.

A little while back someone asked me to paint a carbon fibre effect. After giving it some thought, I told myself that such a project was beneath me, being way too simple for my obsessive need of artistic fulfilment. There is a multitude of simple techniques out there that will give you some kind of carbon fibre effec...

Technical

Technical

by André Bobinas

Thank god for fools! Yeah you heard me, fools! Let me explain.



Take that crazy genius named Benjamin Franklin (1) who in the 1700’s flew a kite attached to a steel wire in a thunder storm. Well, anybody could have told him that when lightning struck something, or better yet someone holding a steel cable, the result would give off a smell similar to cow manure. However thanks to this genius the principle of harvesting electricity was born and for that reason we can light our houses, play our music and most importantly ride our bikes.

Never Ending Chaos

By Juice, Alexe Mirka and Stephane St-Hilaire

After travelling the roads of Quebec atop my first bike and having attended a multitude of bikes shows around the region, I finally came to the conclusion that it was time to have a bike built that would reflect my personality, something I would be proud of riding into the next phase of my life. I visited the Rat Shop to chat with my buddy Fred. He is a master fabricator whose reputation in regard to custom motorcycles is excellent (the evidence is before our eyes). He builds the craziest machines. Combining his experience and my personal tastes it didn’t take very long to come to a conclusion. My bike was to be a Pro-Street. The Rolling Thunder frame, which in my opinion has perfect lines, would allow me to experience...

The Lama Tour - Cuba 2011

Cuba. What an amazing place full of sights and experiences so different from what we are used to. When Keld Iversen called and asked if I would join his troupe of Canadian LAMA (Latin American Motorcycle Association) riders, the only answer was a resounding “yes”! Perhaps I take for granted questions like this because so much of my life and work revolves around travel – it’s easy to jump on a plane and I love the adventure.

This being said, what brought the rest of this troupe to Cuba was the desire for some good first-hand experience. While they also had a to-do list that included visiting their fellow Cuban LAMA’s and getting to know them, going riding with them, getting on the first Harleys for rent in Cuba in over 50 years, seeing this island country, enjoying the acclaimed Cuban rum, smoking legendary Cuban cigars and perhaps some poolside R&R to boot, I can’t diminish the first hand experience aspect of the trip.

Interview - Kane's Harley

Interview - Kane's Harley

We just want to have fun!

From the very beginning the young boy from Calgary’s downtown core loved to fiddle with anything mechanical. From go-karts to mini-bikes and scooters he simply enjoyed fixing power-driven machines. His technical abilities steadily grew and by the early sixties working on, building and riding all types of motorcycles gave him the utmost gratification. Mick Cawthorn’s first brand new bike, a 1969 Norton Commando, was purchased at a shop called Motorbike City after the salesperson at Kane’s Motor Cycle Shop Ltd. would not sell him a used Harley. He later went on to work as a mechanic for Motorbike City as well.

Sixty-one year old Mick started at Kane’s on a bet. The motorcycle shop he frequented had a dilemma as one of the police bikes they were servicing needed a frame
