The Finished Product! OH YEAH!

Here are my updated pictures of the Motorcycle Cup Holder.



Here is the Left side.




Here is a better picture of the Left side.

If you look closely at the Left side pictures, you will notice there is a chain hanging from the handle bar. It is a custom made bottle opener designed from my bottle opener on my key chain. 




Here is the Right side/ Front view.

The head on the man riding the motorcycle is a speedometer from a Harley Road King. It also is a bobble head, meaning it bounces up and down on a spring.



Here is a better picture of the Right side.




This custom made piece was made for $300. I was provided with quite a few parts from my client's husband's shop without him knowing! In the end, my client’s husband truly enjoyed his Father's Day gifts. The Motor Cycle Cup holder was suppose to go outside near the fire place but he loved it so much a place was made for it inside his man cave.
 



I also made some table side lamps out of Harley pistons and air filter covers. Here are some pictures; these lamps also double as ashtrays for cigars.


Here you can see the light bulb inside the air filter cover.


A full view.


Looking inside the cylinder; perfectly made for enjoying a good cigar. 



"96 Cubic Inches Road King," I used a chrome lug nut to keep the air filter secure. 

 

Here is one in it's new home!

I also made a lamp for the man who helped my client pick out all the parts and from her husband's shop, her husband's best friend, and the Godfather to their daughters. I made him one lamp but it just wasn't Manly enough, so I made this one instead.





I made this out of a motorcycle tail pipe.



Here is another picture in my work space.

These sculptures for this client really made me feel good about my work. I have been talking with quite a few people about life ambitions, dreams, and goals. Everyone, I mean, EVERYONE, has said the same thing, “Do what you love! Find a way to make doing what you love, your passion; the thing that truly makes YOU happy, make you money. Then DO IT!!!”



I don’t know why it has taken so long for me to really understand this, but I understand now! A normal 8 hour job doesn’t make ME happy. Making metal art makes ME happy. It’s what I want to do, if I can make money doing it then that is a bonus! Don’t worry I will keep my job for now….. But you could bet large amounts of money on what I am doing every weekend from now on until my art can sustain a consistent income.



Thank you Sid and Kartha, you gave me that kick in the ass I needed. If you every want another piece made don’t hesitate to contact me!
