We don't usually hype ebay auctions around here, but this week our good friend Wayne from Dirt Works Australia emailed us to let us know about something special they are doing to benefit the building of facilities for Djarragun College in Far North Queensland. Mat Hannan is riding his bike and also auctioning off a Long Haul Trucker that was hand painted by Aboriginal artists in his efforts to raise $5,500 for the college. Only two of these bikes exist, and just one of them is being auctioned. The auction is currently running on ebay and can be found here. If this sort of thing interests you please place your bids to have a chance of owning something very unique and helping out a great cause while you're at it. -----

Peter occasionally takes lovingly artful photos of his own stereo equipment and shares them on Facebook in much the same way others post pictures of their children or pets.
