See See Smoking Seagull 1
The crew at See See Motor Coffee Company in Portland, Oregon built this brutally elegant, Yamaha-based cafe racer, the Smoking Seagull 1. We previously featured a See See Motor build, a Honda CR-250-based cafe racer.

The See See Motor Coffee Company is both a custom bike shop and a coffee shop, located at 1642 NE Sandy Blvd. in Portland. Thor Drake of See See is the creator and organizer of The One Motorcycle Show, an annual event that has become a resounding success, pulling attendees and exhibitors from all over the country and beyond.

Saker S-1: Private Jet Targets Mach 0.99

Saker S-1 Concept Art
Saker Aircraft is pitching this fighter-inspired personal jet that is designed to just kiss the speed of sound with a top speed of Mach 0.99. It's a tandem two-seater. The value proposition is the time saved getting from point A to point B, though I think the Top Gun looks, the fighter jet sex appeal is the real attraction.

Tip of the hat to Gizmag, which is where I found the Saker. They have a gallery of Saker pics up.

Flying Magazine online has a post up about the Saker. According to writer Stephen Pope, Saker is already taking pre-orders for the S-1 for delivery in 2019. The price tag ranges from $5M to $7M, depending on features.... which includes an option for ejection seats.
