Merry Christmas from Pipeburn

Posted on December 24, 2012 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.


Merry Christmas

I swore I wasn’t going to feature a cheesy image this Christmas. You know the ones, like fat Santa riding a tiny bike, or a motorcycle ‘pimped out’ with a million Christmas lights. No, this year I was going to be strong and avoid the cliché all together – until I came across this image (above) by British photographer Robert Schoehuys. Every year Robert shoots a pin-up calender for the the French AC Pin-Up Speedshop that features some very nice café racers and classic bikes – not to mention some beautiful women. If you’re keen to see more or buy one, you can visit the Pin-Up Speedshop store for their 2011 edition.

But more importantly, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and if you’re lucky enough to be able to ride this time of year, ride safe. If you are going to be spending a lot of time in your garage over the next few months (due to snow), make sure you send us some pics of your finished projects when you come out of hibernation.
