Mean machines of Korea.


After a fairly uneventful flight and taxi ride, I found my hotel in Busan. This morning was a write off due to jet lag, but I managed to get a long walk in to get my bearings this afternoon.

Aside from the usual consumerist mega malls, the back streets were littered with small shops. They were selling interesting but unidentifiable goods, which unfortunately I was unable to enquire about due to my poor Korean.

One of the highlights was this little beauty! I’m not into bicycles or scooters, but isn’t this just as cute as a button?? From the white wall tyres to the tiny chrome tank, I love it! Other 2 wheeled machines are quite rare for a city this size. Mostly ratty scooters, in fact I haven’t seen a “real” bike yet.

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
