Since I last posted I seem to have gone to the desert, spiritually.
This isn't so rare for me.
Every day I read the blogs I follow and this week I realized that all these are art related and full of great stuff.
Well since I can't seem to get into a reflective mode I started thinking of the art aspect of my life and so it led me to look through my picture albums. Here is what I consider an attempt at art of a different sort.
This motorcycle is the brainchild of a friend of mine, Dave and the collaboration of three friends Dave, Norman and myself on weekends to produce what Dave's imagination saw as the bike of his dreams.
It is a Honda front end married to a Volkswagen rear chassis. The metal work was done with the help of a four inch pipe and two "c" clamps on picnic table!
At each step of construction we tweaked the individual parts until he said; "that's exactly what I pictured in my mind."
The paint work was done by a young man starting out in the trade. As you may have guessed Dave, the owner is a fire fighter and proud to show it throughout his travels.
Dave did all the decorations and pinstripes.The bike has traveled across Canada and back and has accumulated over 70,000 kilometers over the past seven years.
