Rad seat. How'd you attach the vinyl to the aluminum?

I amateur upholstered using a sandwich of aluminum, foam, then leather. I just stretched the leather over the foam down to the aluminum then riveted it every 1/2" or so, and heated it up to get it smoother. Lots of hole drilling but it was worth it haha!


Did some fender things today


It's almost a bicycle again! I'll have to take it down again to powdercoat the frame though.


I've also started drawing out the headlight area. Getting the look I want is taking a lot more thought than I expected, but it should be interesting :)

Looks good! Really clean bike to start with; lucky you.

Do you think you can send me a pic of the rivets you used to attach the leather and seat pan?

Thanks man!

It's not pretty, but here's a shot:



Got the tail light in, and set it on the fender to see what it'll look like


Sandblasted my triple trees and started polishing the forks

And most excitingly, design on the front headlight area has begun. I think it's going to be wrinkle black with white pinstripes, with the horizontal slats. Still needs tweaking though, it doesn't look quite right yet.

I really like the last one with the integrated turn signals. It almost looks like a vintage camera or something. Black would be a cooler color though, especially the wrinkle.

Pretty final front plate design.

I also dropped the frame off for powdercoating today  :D

That headlight/plate art deco look is the most innovative I have seen in a very long time.  I won't know if it matches the rest of the bike until it's made and fitted, but it's really interesting.

Are you and industrial designer or were you just feeling inspired?
