Thought i`d show this project off, i only have 4 pic`s of it left. I made it a number of years ago and it was sold the same day i finished it. It`s was about 8” long by about 6” high and alot of small pieces were carved for it. I think the v-twin motor alone had something like 40 pieces. The chugs on the motor were ebony the bottom end maple. The carved 1 piece wheels were red oak with painted black tires. The frame, gas tank, back and front fenders, oil tank were black walnut. Forks, exhaust pipes, brake disc`s, and handlebars were maple. Seat was ebony. Maybe someday i`ll get a chance to do another one of these.

Very nice work, but a little hard to see the details in the photo. How about making another one and posting a better photo? It deserves to be seen better.

This is really a fantastic miniature.

Outstanding. I hope you got a really good price for it.
