From everyone at the Vanilla Workshop – Welcome at last to our blog. Speedbloggen is news, events, insights, interviews, profiles, photography and stories from the Vanilla Workshop. Which includes Coat, Vanilla and, of course, Speedvagen. We hope you enjoy this closer look at our work and collaborations, as well as our friends, family and customers.

At the moment, we’re working on our latest run of Road Machines due for completion in early spring, preparing for NAHBS in Richmond and getting ready to begin work in early May on our first ever run of Track Machines.

Speedvagen has become a major focus of the Vanilla Workshop, and as such, we’d like start Speedbloggen off with a look into the process of building a run of Machines. But first, images from a recent build session with guest Mike DeSalvo.


  1. OK, can anybody pick out their frame from the labeled stack of tubes? I’m guessing I can identify mine from the lineup of frames – I doubt that too many other people ordered the Sasquatch size!

  3. The “labeled stack of tubes photo” is gone. Mine could be 1 of 3 of the frame line-up photo.

    I love that Speedvagen headtube for the track frame too.

  4. tyler,
    next you are going to tell me that you picked the Surprise Me color and that you live in KY – i was counting on having the only one of these around for a few hundred miles

  5. SM and in Austin. We are all good. Perhaps that stack of tubes photo was from last year?

  6. Steve,

    depending on where you live in KY, there may be other Vagen owners closer than you think ;-)

  7. Tyler – Austin??? Can’t wait to get down there next week. Been going to Hellweek every year since ’03. One of my favorite weeks of the year.

    Craig – There is no way that there is another Vagen owner in the thriving metropolis that is Shelbyville! – But I am only 25 miles from Louisville.
