On this build, I wanted to just enjoy the mixed media and lines of the work because sometimes we just need to step back and loosen up a little. I took an organic approach to what would become a more conceptual, sculptural build. This project started about eight years ago when I got this engine from my buddy, Billy Lane. Then, I started looking for a transmission to run behind it. Hugh at Sixth Street Specials (New York) had a few pre-unit Triumph transmissions that I could piece into a complete one. I mounted a mini-alternator up front to run lights off the dual chain-drive setup created from combining old and new sprockets. The shocks are Redwing roadrace. I machined the little brass spring collars that replaced plastic ones. As time passed, the legs took on a pitted patina that inspired the look of the whole bike today. The future look of the bike will be basically what you see here, but the tank will be fleshed out in steel, while keeping the lines and feel of the mixed materials.
