Clocks
« on: Oct 10, 2012, 18:36:35 »
EDITED WITH BETTER PHOTOS:

Quite possibly the easiest 'art' to make with old motorcyle parts.  This has been done a thousand times before, but I did it again anyway. I like functional stuff rather than dust collecting 'art', so I stole some AA battery powered clock mechanisms form some old cheap wall clocks and made the following a while ago:

Harley-Davidson TwinCam clutch cover and clutch spring.  I just glued the spring (which just happens to have 12 tangs,making them a great choice for clocks) to the cast aluminum cover via industrial adhesive.  I also sanded the chrome cover to a dull finish for a more attractive look.






Harley-Davidson brake rotor, circa 2000-2008(?), with an Evolution timer cover in the center.  If you look closely, you can see then "V2" embossed in the center.




Another photo of the same piece.

Very cool, the top one definitely worked out perfect.  I think the rotor is more aesthetically pleasing, though.

The clutch cover looks better in person.  I'll try to take some real camera photos soon.  1st posted now edited.
