Merry Christmas from Pipeburn


Posted on December 24th, by Scott in Other. 22 comments

We want to wish all our readers, builders, commentators, critics, keyboard warriors and even the spammers a Merry Christmas from everyone at Pipeburn. We would also like to give a special thanks to all our sponsors who help keep Pipeburn upright. If you are wondering who they are, check out the right hand side of this post and you will see some of the most passionate and awesome moto companies from around the world – we heart you guys.

We have some big plans for 2013, so watch this space, Pipeburn will be going in for a complete rebuild – don’t worry, we won’t be using vintage Firestones. Over the next few weeks we will still be posting motorcycle goodness but we are on holidays, so they may be a little less regular than normal.

Wherever you are on this planet, be sure to have a great holiday and if you’re lucky enough to be able to ride in your part of the world, ride safe…

The above photograph was taken by our good friend and fellow Australian Cafe Racer member, Smelvis Broholm. Art direction, set build, styling and cat wrangling was performed by Nixie the Xmas Pixie Skobier. And the handsome talent is Rogue the cat and the bike is Smelvis’s XS650 he calls Thor’s Hammer – you can check more on this project here.

    Thanks for your efforts, Andrew and Scott and guest writers. Looking forward to the next year.

    We’ve seen a cold snap in the Northeast US, my buddy winterized my bike for me.

      Did it win the Christmas sweater contest?

        Just think of it as saving an innocent child from a lifetime of therapy.

    That’s some super green carpet.

      Excellent proof that it wasn’t stuffed.

        The only good cat is a stuffed cat.

    Dear Pipeburn People,

    a merry christmas to you guys! Your little website always manages to produce a smile on my face with every visit and I thank you for that. Please keep up the good work and all the best for 2013!

    Best regards

    Merry Christmas to you and please, please, leave your site alone – it works perfectly fine as it is. Nowadays it seems every time somebody redesigns their site they just make it more bloated yet somehow less useful at the same time!

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Tony-Stark/100003079960619 Tony Stark

      I concur. Your site is clean, straight forward, and easy to navigate. Besides, I don’t think anybody coming here would be the type to think your site was sooo 2012.

    This bike is ruined with those Firestones and tacky pipe wrap.

      One of your best comments Tony! Have a good one.

        Merry Christmas to all and to all a good bike!

    Face of the cat is shifted to another dimension… As usual.
    Merry Christmas!

    Checking in and seeing the same tinsel-festooned bike every day was a little depressing at first. Then I realized that if I was going to get my fix, it’d have to be in person. Time to don my gay apparel (a nice heavy set of coveralls) and go freeze my jingle bells off in the garage.
