You become you reliably questions, what has this report to search here?

Let you surprise!

Here the first sections.

The ribs to the foremost and back to connect me to despairing brought.

Next the hands had to be converted.
For this all bones of the fingers were separated and built up with wire again.

The hands must in the future which to hold be able.

Now betrayal I which I intend, I build a custom bike.

For the engine I poured off all parts of a Tamiya 1/6 of kit (it to be supposed still further Custom Bikes to follow).

These are about 2 kg silicone.

Here the first casting for assembly of the test purposes serves.

Great idea and great job. I hope the skeleton will be strong enough to be the backbone of the frame.

hallo,

diese beiden Links kenne ich, das sind die beiden Bikes nach denen ich mich ein wenig orientiere.

Der Rahmen wird schon halten, ich denke hier auch an das Penz Performance Bike ohne bzw. mit offenen oberen Rahmenzug, das geht auch.

Diesen Bike steht auch noch auf meiner Liste zum Nachbau.



hello,
I know these two Bikes, at these orient myself I a little.

The framework will already hold, I thinks also of the Penz performance Bike without and/or with open upper framework course, goes here also.

Hi Keramh, This is some real creativity, combined with outstanding craftsmanship, and quite a departure from your fine antique cars. Viva variety! One silly question - which came first, the skeleton V2, or the tattoo?

With the search for suitable wheels I am discovered the LEGO Bike of my son and everything was clear.

Silicone, Resin and new rim interior, wars already.

LMAO!!! Keramh, mate - this is going to be interesting - fantastic idea - and from what I've seen, you have some great ideas on moldmaking and resin casting (my particular specialty)...bloody nice work so far, man.

I'll be keeping an eye on this - and if you find you've run into a problem with a particular mold (but I don't think you will), give me a shout - I might be able to lend a hand.

Cheers, Brother!

hello,

thanks for the offer.

Except small bubbles/inclusions so far everything ran well.
Altogether some Kilos of Resin for figures and construction units were already processed.
I must buy now only again material.
At present I come unfortunately not to build, this report however further to go,
am promised.

hello,

it continues to go to be supposed with the suspension at the front the bonearms a Springerfork to become.

Here the individual parts completely from the remainder crate.
Fit with springs a roller-point pen, copper wire, steel nails, Evergreen of profiles and two garbage cans of a 1:87 it railway.

On the model construction one does not have to spend always much money.

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2009/06/18.jpg

As the first the nails were bonded into the thin tubes.
The nail serves as attack that the spring does not smooth out.

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2009/06/19.jpg

As the second step the larger tubes are attached.

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2009/06/20.jpg

As the third the writers springs are postponed.

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2009/06/21.jpg

As the fourth step the ground of the small garbage cans was perforated and the eyes bent from wire was bonded.
The eyes are still too soldered.

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2009/06/22.jpg

The completely installed shock struts.

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2009/06/23.jpg

here the spring was stuck in the larger case at the arm bones.

http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2009/06/24.jpg

In the end again a picture where one the spring travel to see good can.

hello,

yes, here it also goes on!
After I have furnished my new amateur space ready I can also do again what.

Now the frame is almost ready.
http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2010/06/248.jpg

The skeleton is also already ready, the legs had to be shortened something and are already bent.
http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2010/06/249.jpg

and here sometimes everything test-half fitted together.
http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2010/06/250.jpg

here this put to itself out the arms with my selfbuilt springs become too long.

These were rejected again and now the bike gets by without springs.

The next step is the rear fender in him the oil tank will be integrated.

That's got to be the coolest bike I've seen. It reminds me of the one in Ghostrider except that one was a horse.

hello,

further it goes...

The rear fender is inserted, from the right he lies firmly close.
http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/images/imported/2010/06/256.jpg

On the left side a cutting had to be created for the chain.

Here a look at the integrated oil tank.

now where the tank was mounted and was levelled out a lot and was sharpened...

if I have varnished a layer black to recognise possible mistakes.

hello,

after countless dragging work I was almost in despairing.
The fender widening tilts the stuck one was always visible.
By chance I saw in the TV a report about " Indian Larry " with the "Biker Built of" there he riveted to the decoration a metal on a fender.

It was this and my problem is removed.

The open drillings are for the fixtures of the saddle.

I never expected you to light the model. That's incredible. When this is done, I'm going to nominate this for model of the month. This is one of the most unique builds this site has had. This ranks right up there with Dragula and the Munster Mobile. It would nicely complete the trio.

from the rear wheel one does not see unfortunately any longer much, left is the chain.

and no brake is installed there in front is it in the back on the right of somewhat larger…
