DEEP IN THE GRIP OF "CONE-SHOVEL MADNESS" . . . . I'M JUST A CREEPIN AND A PEEPIN AND NOT SLEEPIN . . . . DOIN WHAT I USUALLY DO WHEN GETTING A PROJECT TOGETHER IN MY HEAD . . . . SEEKING INSPIRATION FOR WHAT I'M TRYING TO ACHIEVE . . . . SOLIDIFYING LOOSE IDEAS INTO SOMETHING MORE CONCRETE . . . . SOME SUPER SWEET SHOVELS SHOWING SERIOUS STYLE.
Three delicious cone shovels from my last hours worth of interweb infiltration that stood out for various reasons as I bounced from one to the next . . . . there's good to be found in mostly everything if you look hard enough and clear the mind of any pre-existing prejudice.
Above, a recent piece of pristine purple perfection from the Malinky brothers, first, I fucking love the colour purple and the flake is just edible, second, the sissy barette is a complete winner and rocks in league with the height of the bars, third, the pipes are smokin it, tight and tucked and linked to the wild mini mega, the front end is as clean and smooth as a baby's bum and finally, the rear guard is sitting in absolutely perfect concentricity with the radius of the tire/wheel combo . . . .

Above, a completely different style of ride but still using the trusty cone shovel as the motorvayshun, the thing that grabbed me about this baby, apart from the gorgeously subtle paint and the overall simplicity of execution, was the way that the front stopper is almost invisible in between the spokes, given that I'm going to run a front brake, it's well noted . . . . the other element that had me from hello is the fact it is one of the very rare 'Invisi Glide' platforms, judging by the total absence of chain in this shot, sorry, couldn't resist, clearly pre completion . . . .
