    I hand make motorcycles and other pieces for cool, unique, one of a kind decorations/desk art. Most are built with at least some of the metal being recycled from motorcycle/engine parts. The first one I made just to see if I could and so many people loved it and wanted one I started making more. I plan on just updating this thread as I finish builds (so subscribe...I may build something that is relevant to your interests). If you have a suggestion for a build you would like, please let me know, I'm not going to promise I'll build it, but I'll absolutely consider it. I build these as my spare time allows, so custom builds can take a few weeks to finish.

    The KTM Dakar bike doesn't have the body work on it yet.... I can turn it into a dirtbike with different body work.

    I think it's going to be really cool, such a recognizable bike and it's the bike that comes to mind when even thinking about the Dakar. I may have to make a base and include a bag of sand to dump on it. :D

    I'm hoping to be able to knock it out this weekend, but I'll let you know. I still have a few hours to go on it.

    I certainly think I can! I've actually been planning on building one for my next "theme" build, they are such a unique design. I'm going to start working on one (they can easily take 3 weeks to finish because I build them in my spare time and that depends on what my loving wife and two kids give me :rofl).

    I'd be interested in a sport bike or cafe racer.
