Jarvis Cocker – “Aline” (Christophe Cover)

Way back in February of 2020, the first trailer for Wes Anderson’s new movie The French Dispatch hit the internet, and it featured a piece of music that was both familiar and unfamiliar. The that played at the end of the trailer was a bit of a standard — “Aline,” a huge 1965 hit for the French singer Christophe — but the recording was different. As it turns out, that voice belonged to the former Pulp leader Jarvis Cocker. And now, with the long-delayed theatrical release of The French Exit loomi...

Alpine: An ice-cool Husqvarna SM 630 by Freeride Motos

Some custom builders get locked into one style, while others play all over the field. But Pierre Dhers at Freeride Motos seems to bounce between two very specific styles: scramblers and racers (of both the cafe and track varieties). Now he’s combined both disciplines into one ultra-crisp machine. Dubbed ‘Alpine,’ this Husqvarna SM 630 was built to meet multiple needs for its supermotard enthusiast owner. “He wanted a different motorcycle with a ‘scrambler spirit’ to ride on a daily basis,” ex...

Speed Read, 23 May 2021

Return to form: Workhorse revives a Speed Triple 1050

Before Brice Hennebert started building race-inspired machines as Workhorse Speed Shop, he ran another workshop with a friend, called Kruz Company. The two Belgian builders split amicably a while ago, but there was one notable casualty in the divorce: this Triumph Speed Triple. Brice and his former partner Olivier first took on the Speed Triple 1050 seven years ago. They set out to build it with a monocoque carbon fiber body, but that’s as far as they got. And when they went their separate wa...

Dark art: A stripped-back Ducati 999 from Freeride Motos

There’s no doubt that the Ducati 999 is set to become a future classic. Pierre Terblanche’s aggressive design polarized opinion when it first broke cover, but it didn’t matter; the 999 was proper fast, and took three titles in its tenure on the World Superbike circuit. And its looks have grown on most people over time—like a movie that gets panned by critics at first, only to become a cult classic later. So if it’s that great, why customize it? For Pierre Dhers at Freeride Motos, the answer i...

Custom Bikes Of The Week: 5 July, 2020

Voxan is back with an electric land speed bike designed to hit 330 km/h. Plus a wild Buell M2 Cyclone from France, and details of a collaboration between two storied British marques: Aston Martin and Brough Superior.

Brocanteur Friends Come Over for Lunch

  Two of my favorite brocante dealers came over for lunch. Before they arrived I looked around my house and declared that they were going to find the things I sold to them, I should play a game I thought like "Find fifteen things that you sold me?" Actually, they would find more than that without even trying. I made lunch and was so excited to see Christophe and Philippe.

La Vie en Rose: Inside a Costumier’s Dreamlike, DIY Maison in France

How would a French costumier style her own stately country house? With quiet, rosy hues, cinematic hints of silver, and linens she sews herself. For months we’ve been following French stylist and costumier Céline Sathal on Instagram as she slowly and with care restores a traditional hôtel particulier in a tiny village outside of Tolouse. Sathal, who works as a costume designer for the French theater, opera, and cinema, found the 1870s house on Le Bon Coin, the French equivalent of Craiglist (“wh...
