This bike I built in 1995 and finished in 1996, still
to this day is considered a radical bike and was REALLY radical
back then. It won Best in Show at the Charlotte bike show and won
'best chassis' its first time out. I've been building and painting
bikes since 1994 and now I am slowing down to persue my real talents
which is painting and doing sculptures which an artist does. So
now I try to squeeze a bike job inbetween spending time doing paintings
and sculptures and ocasionally stopping everything to go into my
wood shop and hand make an acoustic guitar. I will be building some
hot rods and a racing boat (in all mahogony with an all aluminum
V8 ) later on which I will post on my site the progress of those
projects. And in my new "Hot Rod shop" I will be building
my own car, an all hand formed body by me of my design, just like
old Ferrari's were made, hammered out and lots of english wheel
work and wood bucks and forms. This project will be intense and
I don't expect to start it for years but is one of my life long
art projects I will do.
So I will continue doing what I do for the rest of my life...artwork..
This is a majorly condensed version of what I've
done in the past 20 years and doesn't even scratch the surface.
Look around the site and check out a bit more and even what's on
this site is a small amount of what I've done. I don't have pictures
of lots of projects that got picked up by the owners before I had
time to photograph them, so goes life.
Starting in 2013 I am concentrating on industrial
consumer design and invention, prototyping my inventions and an
