Oil Tank


This is the flip top oil tank I've been working on for my Triumph. It still needs some work.

International Motorcycle Show







One of my favorite bikes at this show was a scratch built knuckle chopper by, S.I.K (Split Image Kustoms) in Hanford, CA. the build quality of this bike was top notch. A lot of vintage as well as one off pieces make up one of the best looking bikes I've seen in a long time.

International Motorcycle Show






Took a trip out to the International Motorcycle Show in San Mateo, CA today and saw a few cool bikes. The show was mostly all the new models of production bikes and the never ending sea of aftermarket parts for  those bikes, but there was a hand full of customs mixed in. As was a fair amount of vintage bikes. And, as with all major commercial bike shows, a bounty of ultra use full free loot like, pens, fridge magnets, key chains and so on and so on.

Big Chopper


Started on a new one today. This bike will be double the size of my other ones. This allows me to put more detail into the bike. Not pos. what engine it's getting. Possibly a pan, probably a shovel. We'll see when I get to that stage in the build.

helmets






Something a bit different. Thought I would show some lids I painted for me and my wife. This was my first attempt at painting metal flaked helmets. I think they came out pretty good.

flying wheel belt buckle


After making the business card holder, some people said that I should make one into a belt buckle. I think it came out pretty good.

Flying Wheel business card holder

Made this nifty little business card holder for Casey at Captains, because he needed one and as a shop warming gift. Casey owns, and operates Captains in Redwood City, CA. A cool mix of clothing, skateboards, motorcycles and a great vibe. If you happen to be in the area, cruse on by and check it out. My sculptures will soon be available for purchase and viewing at his store and on my blog. Hope you like it Casey!
