Dennis sent me this pic of the Triumph we recently helped him get put together. Tank, seat mounting/shaping, frame shaving, exhaust/chain tensioner/remote oil filter mounting, fender mounting/shaping/sissybar/struts, stainless springer handlebars, and plate/taillight mount (not pictured). Yes, the orange front springer legs have been brought back to black. I really dig this bike, can't wait to see it all painted up. Seat work by Christian @ Xianleather, so classy.
You can tell that I don't know what to do when posing behind a bike.
... in a galaxy far, far away. I used to make things like this. Sterling silver industrial panel light poison ring. Even when I was studying metalworking and art in school, it seems that I was always trying to create work with a purpose that was more than just sitting beneath a plexiglass cube in a gallery. Function was the main reason I moved my metalwork in the direction it resides now. Well... that and the love for stuff with motors.
... and I get to take the recently finished sportster out for a ride. Super fun and stable, feels like I'm glued to the pavement on this thing. Makes me forget that I built this bike to sell in the near future. Oh well, I'll certainly enjoy it while it's in my hands.
