The Land Rover Defender is starting to be one of my favorite SUVs. There are a number of company's out there doing some beautifully things with these vehicles. Afzal Kahn Design is one such company. They've taken the iconic Land Rover Defender XS90 2.2 TDci ($70,000) and added racing seats in the front and rear. Each seat is wrapped in black leather and Harris Tweed. Yes, tweed. Machined Aluminum pedals and silver accent stitches on the seats finish off the interior. The exterior toughness of this vehicle is accentuated with red brake calipers and black wheels. This is one beautiful machine.
The Moto Guzzi V50 By Revival Cycles ($TBA) is another hit by the guys from Austin, Texas. This commissioned project started off with a bike that had been ridden cross-country a couple of times and served its owner well. Some of the many customizations they made was to completely detab the frame, swapped out the tank for one from a Yamaha RD400, custom built a new CNC for brace, rebuilt the electrical and many more improvements. The result is an absolutely stunning piece of work.
