These are some pics of the pan head chopper I did. I placed the dime in the photo to show size. This sculpture is about the same size as the shovel head chopper I last posted about. This sculpture is SOLD.
This is the latest bike i have created. I knew I wanted to make this one a shovel head because, I had already done a pan head in a chopper style (will post pics as soon as i can get pictures). For the frame, I went with a smaller material. It's 1/16", instead of my normal choice 1/8". The clutch lever, oil lines on the engine and the rod from the shifter to the trans, are made from .035" welding wire. This bike sits at, 7 3/4" long and 3" tall.
The pic of Rollie Free explains it self. If your leathers rip at 147mph because of wind resistance, the only proper thing to do is, take them off, put on a speedo and go 150mph. This is my first work with a human figure on it. I think it really gives it speed.
One of my favorites. 1920's Harley Davidson board track racer. It's hard to imagine riding a motorcycle at speeds reaching 120mph with no brakes and a throttle that was stuck wide open. Thay only a kill switch to cut off the ignition, slowing the bike down just enough to get you through the turn. This sculpture is roughly 8" long X 3.5"tall.
