Just needs a little speaker in there playing rocket man on a loop.
I am truly in awe of the skills and the effort that have gone into that. It's really fabulous.
Brilliant to see how it was made that's some work that's gone into it @loopybike fantastic result that's a project to be proud of that!
This is truly a thing of beauty!!! Very well done, loopybike! It looks like something straight out of a comic book Now if you can make one to fit a middle-aged man I will place an order to add one to my bike (would be the only way I'd get my better half near a two-wheeler, haha!)
I'd like to thank you all for your kind comments.
I have started a new build, a bike this time. I'd like to do a thread but I'm not sure which section to post it in.
This forum needs a build thread area!
I'm in awe of the gifted souls who can use an English Wheel. I knew a fellow in Oz who turned out a pair of front guards for an SS100 over the course of a weekend. Not only the compound curves involved but also the sheer size of the things. I half expected to see some sand bending on the tube elements of this project but I guess the curves were a bit tight hence the kerfing (if that's what you might call it). Love the look of some of the cars in the background ... your business?
As somebody who does pdr for a living I take my hat off to you. I could take a dent out of it, I could never make it.
True craftsmanship there, amazing skill to form those panels out of sheet aluminium.
Excellent thread, thanks for sharing :-).
Spray paint it matt black and it would make a good spin on the batmobile
What a fantastic piece of art, im totally in awe of your skills but the best part of the whole build is seeing you and your son enjoying it
Beautiful piece of molehusbandry, well done! It needs a perspex windscreen though!
Thank you @otek59 for resurrecting this thread, I'd missed it originally. @loopybike that is amazing, really brilliant, what a talent you have
As others have said I look in awe at your workmanship, I do have a concern that these skills are going to be lost in this country with the drive to get as many children into University. We should be teaching our young to take up this art, as it is an art, maybe that's the way to get funding for apprenticeships.
Same here missed this first time round , bloody brilliant that is.
What a fantastic project. As someone who is truly hopeless on the tools I applaud your genius. Already looking forward to seeing your next project.
