Hey Guys,

I love to make shit with copper tube (at least I used to), but I never made anything particularly nice looking. Those lamps are excellent. You got an eye.

Just so's we're clear, the goal of the thread should be motorcycle-themed stuff that doesn't go on a bike, or items that were fabbed with techniques that are relevant to bike stuff.

I think all the mods are inclined to let awesome shit slide, 'specially in this thread. I mean, in a more general way, good content is good content. This thread has not been alive and kicking for a long time. Elsewhere on the site, you'll notice some Japanese bikes popping up. Quality shit will stay.

The idea, site-wide, is NOT to moderate posts into oblivion, rather, it's to promote GOOD content having to do with old bikes and traditionally chopped scoots.

And nice lamps every now and then.

We're all crosshatchers and bumsqueezers, other than that no relation.

Now I get it: the Keystone State. That's beautiful, mule.

I think Conchita is the daughter of Miraculous Mutha and Jock E. Shift.
