Except working as editor for magazines like Colorod and founder of Wheels magazine, Sture has built and restored
several cars, trikes and motorcycles.
Even designed an own MC brand based on a straight-4 engine - "Wiking".
Sture was an energetic spokesman for more lenient bike and car customising laws,
and had several meetings with the Swedish government to protest against lots of stupid rules.
He butted heads with four different Ministers of Transport until he finally won the battle
and founded the SFRO (Sveriges Fordonsbyggares Riksorganisation),
the association for Swedish amateur car and bike builders, in 1982.
Sture sold his part in Wheels magazine and retired 2003, spending time as author of novel books.
