I am/was big time into bicycling, mostly off road mountain bike stuff, got into 24 hour racing (on trails) and some long one day events (me on the back of the tandem) I worked full time as a bicycle mechanic when I got downsized in 2008, I only did it for one year as the store went bankrupt. Too bad as I loved working there, ended up working out of my house doing CAD design for prototypes and small assembly lines.I also scratch built a recumbent but quickly found out I could not ride it as my thighs pumped too much air into my gut :) 
I am also into beer brewing from grain and float fishing for steel head if I get the time.

Don't know what the motor with the head off is.

Yes, amazing detail, the packet of Drum rolling tobacco, the mig welder, oxy bottle and drill press, brilliant, could be a photo of an early, probably 1980's , well used workshop....!
