Thank you Boy!

After seeing my post a few weeks ago my friend Boy gave me a book on Theo Jansen called "The Great Pretender" published by 010 publishers. Its a very detailed overview of his work and his ideas. Well worth a read. Also comes with a DVD showing some of his weird creations.

Honda Solo

Looking into importing one of these from Japan. Thought it would be useful for London.

The Solo is the fourth model in the "N Project"* series, designed to deliver to its owners the pleasure of owning and riding a bike that serves as a fashion accessory in addition to providing convenient daily transportation.

The exterior features a simple design that emphasizes the rider's individuality. The air-cooled 4-stroke 50cc engine, adapted from the Super Cub series, offers superb fuel economy and environmental performance. It is fitted with an auto centrifugal clutch that even novice riders can operate with ease.

In addition to the three standard colors, Matt Flat Silver Metallic, Monza Red, and Parrot Yellow, the Solo is also available in a total of 285 color combinations through the Color Order Plan, by mixing and matching tanks, frames, and seats.

* "N Project" stands for "New Project", which is dedicated to developing products that will appeal to young people's lifestyles. The first model, the Ape, debuted in February 2001; the second model, the Zoomer, in June 2001; and the third model, the Bite, in January 2002.
