Keeping it Local at Kustom Kommune

November 10, 2015

Kustom Kommune Collingwood

Due for another photoshoot we decided to keep it local and cruise down the street to Kustom Kommune.   - Here's a peek behind the scenes. 

Kustom Kommune is Australia’s first fully equipped DIY motorcycle workshop, a place where bike lovers can work on motorcycle projects including, restorations, scratch builds, custom projects or general maintenance, no project is too big or small. It’s a community of like minded motorcycle enthusiasts learning from one another and building networks.

Behind the scenes of the Kustom Kommune you’ll find Jimmy Goode and Geoff “Richie” Baldwin, two of Melbourne’s most obsessive supporters of the custom motorcycle scene.

Having both experienced first hand the challenges of working on front porches, in living rooms and on street verges. They knew what it’s like losing sleep while fretting about your wheels parked out in the rain or on a dodgy street. So with the help of a Pozible campaign and loads of like minded supporters they launched the Kommune in 2013

Also on site for a limited time is Easey St the Smoke Out. Serving up some of Melbourne’s best beef brisket, pulled pork and lamb ribs every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening. Kicking off at 5pm the bar serves up cold beers and American Whiskeys, the stereo pumps out nothing but rock and they even have some retro moto movies up on a big screen.

Behind the barbie are the crew from Iron Bark BBQ. Their produce is sourced from local farmers and smoked onsite for 12 hours at Kustom Kommune in a wood fired smoker.

On the day of our shoot the sweet smokey flavours coming from the slow cooking Texan BBQ were mouth watering and bloody distracting for all of us, especially Willie dog.

Huge thanks to Jimmy and the crew for letting Willie come down, we got some great shots. These guys were super friendly and the Kommune has such a great vibe, we highly recommend getting down there checking out the workshop and bikes or just head along to shoot some whiskey and smash some brisket!. – Word on the street is you gotta get there before 8:30pm for any hope of getting brisket.

Sizing guide

Just like us pets come in all shapes and sizes and no two of the same breed are identical. We've made this handy video to help you measure your buddy for the perfect fit.  Below the video you can select your dogs clothing size from our size charts.   *** WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND MEASURING FIRST***

LETS GET STARTED....

  1. MEASURE YOUR BUDDY FIRST FOR THE BEST FIT. ( Watch our 'How to measure your dog video) 
  2. SCROLL DOWN AND SELECT A SIZE FROM THE CHARTS BELOW

 

REMEMBER WE ARE HERE TO HELP.

If your still unsure we are more than happy to help. Just email us your dogs measurements as shown below (and a photo too if you like) We will help you find the best fit for your buddy.  Use the blue contact tab in the bottom right corner  to email us or select contact from the header menu. 

    Pethaus - how to measure your dog

     * Note Vests are sized differently to hoodies and tees please check the "Hoodie or tee size charts at the bottom of the page

    We do not recommend an average breed size as no two dogs of the same breed are exactly the same. - Please do not guess your measurements ie - my dog is a large breed so will be a size large ... that's not how it works guys ;)  

    CHEST MEASUREMENTS ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT FOR YOUR DOGS COMFORT AND BEST FIT.
