For many years I have had many motorcycles. It was enough to turn the key, press a button and eat street, for everything else there was the workshop. I realized that I did not know in depth the thing that gave me so much evasion and satisfaction, I had never done an oil change myself. Where do you put the oil? Then in July 2013, the madness. A new challenge. I went from a dealer bike and I took four old ladies to accomplish the first three projects.
W orking on a vintage motorcycle is an emotion different from a shiny new. Is something that has a story, an experience, he has something to tell. I also like to know where it came from, who has guided and what emotions he tried going on for many years. Some have simply used, who loved her and he's' separate with pain, those who have petted and spoiled. Its tires tell the way he did, his flaws reveal his youth.
S ee it reborn polishing his pieces, create a new personality without denying its origins, feel that he still has much to tell leafing through a book even unopened. By each bike comes a different design, even two identical models, and the aware that no the projects will be the same to her. Its forms can not be bought on the internet, I imagine, I forge on the metal sheet and she is as I see it in my thoughts.
JUST DELETE THIS WORD FROM THE DICTIONARY AND EVERYTHING BECOMES EASY.
I'm not a mechanic. Not even close, I would not offend the category. Not even a car repair shop (save them too). I'm a graphic / advertising photographer for over twenty years. I know I have good taste, I know, and an obsessive attention to detail. I think they are a collection of small, perfect details to define a "good" result. Perfection does not exist but I have never stopped looking for her..
Being a passion and not a job, I steal time to the days and nights, with the same enthusiasm of a child who opens his toy room and you lose on a fantastic journey.
Each motorcycle must reveal a clear identity, expressing a character, be unique. To do this I have to create from a simple sheet of metal, the shape which will give lines and expressions unique, non-repeatable, simply using a hammer, a grinder and a welder.
Each motorcycle is completely disassembled, stripped and rebuilt from scratch. The result is a new bike, extremely careful but still succeeds in telling his whole past history and is ready to live out a whole new one.
