A few weekends ago I was turned onto the Inspiration trade show. Founded by Rin Tanaka ( the man behind the My Freedamn! series ) the trade show was indeed packed full of vintage moto , surf and military inspiration. Seeing as I am the proud owner of a vintage car myself – this show was all the more interesting to me. Alongside the endless displays of Triumphs and impressive selection of old motorcycle boots were a few bike themed goodies. The image above depicts a board track race (click here to see these bikes in action ) Other goodies included classic Monark cruisers , printed musette bags , old bike and car magazine and even a bike lane necklace. And since I’m still a surfer at heart there were plenty of boards , wetsuits , and art to check out.
It was nice to get a little jolt of inspiration and explore the world outside of the bike industry. You can see a neat video recap of the event on their website here.
This show really piqued my interest in life and inspiration outside of the bike world. It may or may not shape the future of this blog ..
