Retro styling is superhot in motorcycles right now, but I think Yamaha’s Resonator125 concept might be the first one brave enough to go for actual wood-inlaid-on-chrome. Classy or too far?
There's a great paper cutout feel to Thomas Plaete's short film Nimbus Machina. An engineer in a monstrous steampunk vehicle must flee the storm he created.
The history of cars goes way back before Benz's motorwagen, despite what the marketing folks at Mercedes-Benz want you to believe. One of my favorite periods in automobile development was in the early 1800s, when steam technology was just starting to mature, and rail locomotives and road-going steam vehicles were…
Okay, it's not technically a spaceship, but it sure looks like what I wish spaceships looked like. It's actually very much a machine designed for use in an atmosphere, since this 1914 Castagna A.L.F.A. 40/60 HP Aerodinamica is the first real example of an aerodynamic passenger car.

Steampunk. Love it or hate it, the style won't be going away for a while. With people steampunking everything from laptops to stuffed animals, it's about time we get some old timey motorcycle action going. This German punk-cycle is an unholy marriage of a Duetz tractor engine, Harley transmission and running gear and…
