    Wow, never would have guess the sprocket But I was on target with the built order. Like the real thing, just small. Roller, then motor and exhaust, seat pan, tank, fender. Too cool. My none welding son want us to attempt one. Big them for me it wheels.

    Thanks for the great thread(s) Ruslan. Always something to grab the eye and always educational. And normally something different from your last project. No pressure on the next one

    Awesome work and attention to detail. I love the small details you've put into the bikes! Keep the pictures coming please.

    Yours are much nicer ... but ...I don’t think I ever posted this one … here is a trike I made last year coffin tank, nut headlight, bolt motor, nickel hub caps, bearing rear wheels, drive chain link shifter and rear brake, laid down rough beads on the seat to make it look cushioned and the wheels and yoke turn. Not my best work but my wife bugged me to make a trike now she wants me to make a side hack … never satisfied lol.Click image for larger version.

    Outstanding ... I know how much time and effort a model specific replica can take ... I've done quite a few in which you can see what they are representing … classic Triumphs and old Harleys are my favorites to do … I’ve posted a few of them before.

    Very nice work. This one has so much detail... stippling the seat was a great idea.

    Outstanding! How many hours do you have it for the finished bike in hand? Great work!

    Guys Thank you for comments!

    about 3 - 5 hours
    I find it hard to say exactly how many hours I spent on the construction of the bike,
    because I built it in between times for 3 weeks for 10-30 minutes a day (as the inspiration and will then build).

    I love how each one gets better, soon you will have one that cranks. haha.

    Donor, what did you use for the jugs (cylinders) and heads on the last one. The motor looks much better. Work for art and details if you ask me. My son is pushing me to make one with him (one that does not weld, this might be the time to get him hooked, but I have no talent like yours).

    What are you asking for that last one?? PM if you do not want to post it.

    I have to agree with everyone else, that thing is bad ###. You did a great job. The back tire is what sets it off I think. How did you make the tire?

    Donor, I like the tire like Shane. What did you use to make the tread. Dremel type tool? Is it a sealed bearing?

    Wanna gain a whole new perspective? Take a look at other bikes I’ve done …then wear an eye patch over one eye and duplicate them. They say you can get used to anything ... I say … um … not so much. You do awesome work! Honestly, you really do and you have my total respect! But try it with half your senses … just for the heck of it; I’m curious, I’ve had to do everything with one eye for so long now … I wonder how well I would do with two eyes … or how a two eyed person would do with one. Just a suggestion ... an experiment if you will. I will never know how well I could weld and fabricate with two eyes ... but it would be interesting to see how well a two eyed person could do with one eye.

    I weld with 1 eye all the time. I have two eyes, but can not see well with either. Both equate to one OK eye.

    Actually closing one will probably help me. But using one eye would be 1/2 an eye for me. Why I teach others and have them do the welding now

    I made the rear wheel of the old Soviet sealed bearing.
    bearing originally had a form wheels, to me remained only, cut a tread, and all.

    I can understand that sometimes closing an eye can be an advantage in certain situations my situation is that I have never welded with two eyes, in fact I never tried welding until I was in my 50’s and never had anyone show me how to do it wish I’d had a mentor because everything I’ve learned was the done the hard way sometimes painfully. I currently have issues with my proximity to the work piece due to the lack of depth perception. I do remember how back when I had two eyes I would sometimes close an eye momentarily while doing close work or when I was in shooting competition while in The USMC some of the marksmen would wear an eye patch if their dominant eye was not the eye they sighted with. Years later I was surfing with a half dozen of my bros and they decided (on their own) to try surfing while an eye was covered … it was hilarious … I never laughed so hard in my life. Closing an eye momentarily is different from having only one eye and if you throw something like nearsightedness due to astigmatism and needing a bifocal because of age into the equation … well you can see where I’m going here (no pun intended). Don’t get me wrong I’m not complaining … if anything I’m bragging lol. I just think it would be interesting to see how sight deprivation would affect others knowing how it has affected me. I probably shouldn’t have made the original post … now people may think I’m an instigator. I thought about deleting the post afterwards but I waited too long and the edit option was gone. I have learned something already … never post after two martinis.

    Winky, my friend but now I understand all that you wrote.
    I've seen all of your work that you share here, and I can say that everything is made very original (все сделано с душой)
    I respect people who despite of everything are engaged in the favourite business - you one of such people

    (Спасибо, мой друг ... Ваша работа является удивительным.) Sometimes when I see the work of others I feel very inadequate ... I have a friend who works for DSR ... Tom Michael Patsis ... http://t.co/9tLKQngS ... this guy just blows me away and some day when I have some extra money I'm going to have him make a piece for me ... probably a model of Antron Brown's rail ... another friend.
