Building Motorcycles for One

BY MATTHEW ROBERTS
@ VOL 113 ON APR 30, 2014

Matthew Roberts, Creative Director at Speedtractor Industries, is part of a global movement to reestablish motorcycles as casual, cool forms of transportation, and he's doing it by creating beautiful, unique custom-made motorcycles for one client at a time. Matthew goes into depth on the new wave of motorcycle riders -- not the circus performers you see on TV -- a group of individuals looking to build something of their own, and take on new adventures on the road.

In The Tiniest Best Boat from PechaKucha Night Chicago Vol. 33, Lindsay Muscato is guessing that it's been a while since you've written a letter, but that's alright, leave it to her to write one for you! We see that Lindsay has written hundreds of letters for strangers on typewriters, and has discovered something really special about herself through it all — find out just what that is!

This was "Presentation of the Day" on June 6th, 2017.
