Photos/Graphic Mock ups of "I wish.." bikes.

This is a thread for those that have ideas. And make mock ups or drawings to verify the idea.

I'll start with two that I've somewhat clumsily put together with Pixelmator on a Mac. I am not a graphically trained guy, so have only learned a few skill via You Tube.

The idea....I first spent all my time and money riding and racing Bultacos. They still hold a piece of my heart and mind. As a 19 year old I bought new and won a lot of races on a blue tanked 1974 Bultaco Pursang.

In the present, the YZ 125 has been called one of the best dirt bikes ever made. I plan on buying one this year. So I combined the Bultaco look on the modern YZ.

I think it looks pretty sharp. This is inspired by the 1974 Model 120 Bultaco Pursang 250.

And this is inspired by the earlier Red Pursangs. Specifically the Model 68. Again, I am not graphic artist, but I think the drawing captures the idea.

Add to this thread with ideas and drawings you have. Whether whole motorcycles, paint jobs, or whatever. Dream on!

Now, do it right and make it shift on the right.

Nice work! Are you going to build it?

I always mock up my bikes in Photoshop when doing some work on them. Really allows you to see what works before investing time and money into the final product. It has saved me countless hours and its fun too to see different looks quickly take shape. Here are a few pics of the last bike I worked on.

I have a 1969 Pursang that shifts on the right. I think I'll leave the (now) confused shifting to that motorcycle.

Yes I plan on it. The 'Bultaco' look brings back too many memories to not build it.

Herr, love the drawing you did. The results look great as well. I need to learn and refine more graphic skills.
