Heart

Hi,

Happy valentines day, hope the day has been good to you so far! Today is a day for the heart, that is why this day is the perfect day to unveil our latest project which will be our main focus the coming weeks. We’re doing an AS3 for the band Titan, a young melodic rock band with great potential! This project will be a bit different from all our previous projects and we hope it will help them! Check out the project update.

Be sure to check them out at www.titantheband.com or www.myspace.com/titantheband. They’re a new band and as always with new bands it’s a struggle to get out and get heard, so do your part if you like them: send the links to your friends, coworkers and families. And if you really like them you can purchase their EP ‘Steps’ and help some musicians out! Links to stores can be fount below. Take a listen to two of the tracks from the EP below as well!

CDON, Target Records, AOR Heaven, Rock Avenue Records

Starting fresh

This bike will be dedicated to the band Titan, a new melodic rock group with a lot of potential! Check them out with the links above or the video below.

We got the bike to start this project a while back and disassembled it way back in November, now that the second orange AS2C is done this will be our main focus! It is one of the frames we got back sand blasted last week. At the moment it’s at Yamaha Center to repair a crack in the engine mount, then it’s of to Bassel for a nice layer of paint!

Quadruple

Hello,

The update today is actually a four parter. It could have been a five parter but instead you get four now and one later!

Starting things of: we got a brand new side cover for the orange AS2C in the mail from the US, now it is truly complete. Head on over to the project update and take a look.

We got 6 frames back after getting them sandblasted, now they”re nothing but clean gray metal. Over the year they will get put back together. Three of them are AS3 frames and three are AS1 frames. All the paperwork to get them registered is ready, all they need is a coat of paint and then we can get started.

During the last few months we’ve been in contact with fellow enthusiast Greg in Australia and have helped him out with his restoration of an AS3. He just sent us a picture of his progress so far and it”s looking good! We’ll be following his progress with his bike over coming months!

We have also received a whole bunch of pictures from our friend Per in Norway of his top notch AS1. It is actually the bike he first owned when he was 15 and he has restored to top condition.

Keep your eyes peeled during the week for the next update!

Run for cover

The missing side cover just arrived from the US, still in its original wrapping! Combined with new checkerflag and 125 emblems and it’s good to go. Now the bike is truly complete, every last painted part is original and all the chrome except the exhaust pipes are original chrome. Expect a new gallery soon!

Both

Hi,

Due to a snowstorm this update is two days late! This has been the coldest January since 1987, apart from that the only time it has been colder was in 1942. Cold is the word to sum things up!

Even though it has been cold as hell, we’ve still managed to complete the restoration of the second orange AS2C! Check it out in the project update.

When we first started with our restorations we didn’t even think we would find a single AS2C, but thanks to a bit of luck, contacts through the website and a lot of effort we’ve managed to find a few. Now the last two restorations have both been AS2Cs!
