BSMC Gear Guide #42
By Gareth Roberts - 11 Jan 15
In this week's Gear Guide we feature another fine limited edition open face from Biltwell, recycled furniture by Classified Moto, vintage motocross kit from Reign, Tellason's classic blanket-lined selvedge denim jacket, whilst Icon offer up some hardcore retro-styled off road gear.
As for comfort, I can spend the entire day in these boots; on and off the bike, try doing that in a pair of modern MX boots! Back in August I attended and rode in Scramble On! with my tracker, the jumps were much bigger than expected and my poor tracker really struggled, when the suspension ran out… which it did incessantly, my legs had to absorb the rest, thankfully the Elsinore boots managed to help me through, not once did I lose my footing and throughout the day I probably attempted to kick start the tracker a 100 times and the sole stayed strong. http://www.icon1000.com/collection/icon-1000-elsinore-boot-2/ https://www.biltwellinc.com/p443/buy/helmets-amp-gear/helmets/bonanza-open-face/-bonanza-helmet-le-fury-black-grey-gold/ http://www.tellason.com/japanese-blanket-lined-denim-jacket/
Their vintage lamp design incorporates a spring/shock welded to a transmission gear, then welded to a brake rotor, and finished with high-quality Bakelite sockets. Each piece retains original scratches, dings and dents, which add to the vintage patina. Classified will take special requests for specific parts and styles, so those nostalgic for their glory years bike can ask for parts to be worked into a unique and sentimental design. http://classifiedmoto.com/
