Dust Busting

We're not quite sure what was in the water from 1984-1990, but from an industrial design point of view it was fantastic. An era of  'dust buster' streamlining when design was still done with chartpak AD's and prismacolors. A time before rapid prototypes when the future was shaped in bondo, clay, and foam. The last generation of designers required to actually draw - before the computer killed our craft. In solemn remembrance of that special time, Icon turns up the Depeche Mode and raises a strawberry Bartles & Jaymes. Via Con Dios late-eighties, you will be missed.

 The Nuda concept bike from Suzuki - circa 1986 - Fresh!

1990 EZ-90 Cub from Honda - a mint one now sits in the Icon office - there is no denying what we are .

 1989 CBR600F1 - defining the 80's with mass appeal plastic wrapped style - the white, red, and blue being the best colorway offered. This particular example is a recent addition to the Icon Garage Team's harem.

The Lamborghini Countach in white - an ashtray full of blow and head full of mousse - the ultimate players whip. Oh yes, someday she will be mine.... 

Salomon SX-90's - one buckle rear entry's - the orange and blacks owned the slopes.

While Syd Mead owned the universe.

The origin of a species - say what you want but as a stylistic icon this vacuum rules. Ironically, as an actual vacuum it sucked.

FSB Testing

Continuing hydrodynamic testing last week during the IJSBA World Jetski Finals in Lake Havasu, The Cretin’s minion reports “The horns survived and flourished in the heat/sun/coconut oiled breast filled environment with great success”  We’re not exactly sure what “great success” is, but he may want to get some antibiotics for that…

Contra Jacket Review

Check out Sportbike Track Gear's review of our new Contra Jacket

Matte Black - Industrial Chopper

Another build from D at Matte Black. Sickest pipes ever? Probably. The crazy Giger'esque sculpture is actually the original gastank from this bike. Yeah.....sick beyond words.
