21 Buckets

I'm sure the folks at Bell Helmets will get a kick outa' this.

It's dubbed The '21 Helmets Art Show'. The brains behind the project, Thor Drake paired 21 artists from the Portland area with white Bell Custom 500 helmets. That's right, he asked they use the lids as their canvas. The results are as varied and interesting, as the artists who crafted them.

Check it bitches.

The tattoo and gold leaf entries are my faves.

New Accept Album/CD

The new Accept album Stalingrad will be released on 04/06/2012.

According to their release: 'Stalingrad' is a no compromise album from start to finish, without a filler track anywhere to be found, sticking to the winning combination of working with producer Andy Sneap.

Accept guitar player Wolf Hoffmann says "Because of the huge success of 'Blood Of The Nations', the expectations are very high for the new album."

Hoffmann says "We put ourselves under enormous pressure to bring out a new album right after this tour marathon, which brought us two times around the globe. But we are very proud about what we delivered with 'Stalingrad' and we hope our fans will like it as well".

Super Snake

Holy crap!

Carroll Shelby marks his 50 years working with Ford, by introducing an 800-hp Super Snake.

That's right, the GT500 'Super Snake' is available in 650, 750 or 800 horsepower configuration as a coupe or convertible. Wow.

And you better bring your wallet. Based on the Ford Shelby GT500, the anniversary package begins at $60k not including the price of the base car.

It's branding the anniversary edition Shelby Ford Mustangs as GTS, GT350 and Super Snakes.

Each killer machine will have special seat stitching and rear emblems, all indicating the silver anniversary.

From the website: To try to play to the collector market Shelby says it will only turn out 50 white and 50 black Mustangs, both with gold stripes.

I'm sure metal fans will dubb this version of the GT-SS, the 'White Snake'.

The 'Bub'

Check it. One very clean and mean Sportster.

It was at the David Mann show and was photographed by Mark Kawakami of Joyrides.

The bike was built by BUB Enterprises, owned by Dennis manning.

Why BUB, it's his nickname: Big Ugly Bastard.

HD's Slim & 72

Harley-Davidson unveiled 2 new motorcycles Tuesday, the Seventy-Two and the  Softail Slim.

Harley officials describe the 72 this way: "In creating the Seventy-Two, we were also inspired by the vibe of the early chopper era".

"Those bikes were colorful and chromed, but also narrow and stripped down to the essentials. You look at period examples and they are almost as simple as a bicycle."

"It’s a custom style that’s very particular to America and that California scene".

From its hard candy, red flake paint and mini-ape hangers, to its narrow whitewall tires, the 72 is a respectful nod to that era. Wow, it's as if Harley is finally listening to it's customers. 

As for the Slim, it has a trimmed front fender, Hollywood bars and a narrow rear end. Slim and trim indeed.

Harley says: "It has iconic style that recalls classic custom bobbers of the 1950s".

It's simply a Softail on a diet. Hopefully it also comes with a slimmed down price tag.
