Håkan Persson’s Cocaine White Yamaha DT50MX

View all 15 Photos

A custom Yamaha DT50MX cleaned up nicely by the work of Håkan Persson calling it Cocaine White since it’s fast and white. You know the saying it takes a village to raise a child, well in the course of this bike’s makeover it was a bit of this and a bit of that from here and there that came together to make the sleek finished product. The headlight was salvaged from his dad’s retired Fiat 125; the seat reconstruction started with half of a broken skateboard he had on hand that mum upholstered; got ahold of the back tire and handlebars from old friend; the petrol tank is from a ‘Crescent 1209′, and the go is from a 50cc engine with 5,5hk.  Håkan lives for these side bike projects, “At daytime I’m running a design agency called ‘Kollor Design Agency’ here in Sweden and on my spare time I build and restore Italian sports cars, mainly Alfa Romeo’s . This is my second attempt to build a bike. I’ve actually not been in contact with bikes at all before but a friend of mine kind of pushed me into trying one of his. After my first project which was a modified ‘Ciao Bravo’ I got hooked.”

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
