I know I previously uploaded a few photographs of my barmy road trip from Tune Components in the Black forest to AX Lightness in Nuremberg, but I've uploaded the story that I wrote on the German anodised component masters for an American magazine, to my website, so here's a handful more and a link if you fancy a read on an old school master.

Link here:

Thanks for looking.

Haha. They were properly hand made processes too. That always impresses me. I mean obvs they were machined etc but humans did every process and then rode the stuff home at closing time. Impressive. As were AX Lightness and Lightweight.
