  • My motorcycles


    I have been designing and building these for quite a while now, and each one is different.
    They are made from Oak, Pine, Cedar and Maple, with plastic for the exhaust and aluminum and thread for the wheels.
    Like all my projects so far, these are finished with several coats of clear polyurathane.

          Hi C&C, they turned out real nice.

          Ditto Styrk1.

          Do you work from patterns or make it up as you go along?

                            My Motorcycles

                            Thanks to everyone for their kind comments on my motorcycles.

                            Styrk 1, the newer ones are for sale, I'm keeping the first ones that I made.

                            When I started these I made some quick sketches, cur out some parts and started to assemble. I now have some patterns that I use, however when sanding, you sure can change the look of things quickly, so no two are alike.
                            The first one turned out ok, but I wanted more detail, so I bought some motorcycle magazines. These showed different fenders, handle bars, exhaust systems and tanks, lots of ideas..
                            I keep changing the shape of the frame and tanks as I go along, as well as adding more detail.

                            They are about 12" long, which seems a good size. As some of my friends, who ride Harley's, and have bought my motorcycles, have told me. they look well proportioned.

                            I have some stuff that is a work in progress, of which I will post pictures in the near future, when I get more done on them.

                            Thanks again

                              Nick, I really liked the three wheeled one. Could I get a cost? Styrk1

                                He did the Baltimore run in October and finished in a little over 10 minutes. Of course it’s a very hilly course here and flat in San Antonio. Very proud of all of them.

                                Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...
