  • 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

                                This site should be on every woodworkers computer. As has been said the first image is Wenge....

                                I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                                If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                                The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                                I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
