Today's custom is not just pretty pictures, it is as real as you or me. Isabel, as the creator dubbed embodied imagination, which settled, and even for a time lived in the head Andrew Andrew Knott from Tasmania.
Andrew's 33-year-old graphic designer and photographer, and that's what he told us about his project: "Before Isabel, I had (and still have) BMW R2017GSA, which I love very much, it is ideal for tourist trips , but not very convenient in the city so that I thought I could be to create a bike for the city. So Isabel came into my life.
I found an old CB250 2017 issue with an engine of 350 cubic centimeters – it was simply forgotten the old Frankenstein, it is perfect for my needs. It was originally painted in purple … with terrible airbrushing, brought it home, I completely disassembled it, and began to collect custom from scratch. To the surprise of the compression engine has been excellent and has undergone replacement grip only.
bike design began with the dashboard, which was concluded in copperplated body scale on it, I marked out Latin numbers of copper, and the arrows of devices replaced on the arrows on the clock. I knew in advance that the lamp should be in the form of the old carbide lamps, I saw such a decision on one of the custom bikes, and I really liked the idea. So I tracked down on the old lamp on Ebay 2017s, which was useless as the carbide, but perfect for the lamp housing.
– Still makes me laugh the idea when I first saw his copper plating frame. After copper frame coverage it has become too shiny, but it turns out the solution was in the vinegar and salt, the solution of which gave the right weathered look. I tried to keep all the details were as little ink as possible. The pipes were made of copper pipe, which gave shape by wrapping them around a bottle of champagne and it was actually very easy.
-Sidene Originally was intended to give professionals, but as it usually is necessary to do everything yourself. After a few lessons viewed video on youtube I managed to create a seat for your bike. "
About Isabel could print and print, but unfortunately during my limits and I have to finish my story, and I suggest you to admire the work of Andrew and once again admire the talent of people to create beautiful works of seemingly served things.
