Angel wings

Also last year or two years ago, I made this “A” with wings from a piece of aluminum.
I cut it and filed with small files.
It wasn’t easy but I kind of liked it. Then I did more…
I did not know what I was going to do with it.
This year I found out; I put it on my old headlight.

Nargile (shisha) taillight and tea ball

More than 12 years ago, I got a Nargile also called Shisha during a study trip in Syria.
With the pipe I go two bowls but one never fitted.
Last years, I planed to make a taillight for my bike and by looking in one of my messy boxes, I found this Nargile bowl… My Nargile taillight story had started. ^_^

I made the bulb holder reflector from a tea ball, and the bracket from a piece of stainless

XS 650 SE 1979 - still in progress

I got this XS 650 SE 3L1 (1979) long long long time ago in not too good condition but it worked, so I rode it like this one or two years.
Then I decided to make a Dirt Track with it, but I waited too long and I changed my mind. ^///^
Some years after, I discovered Brat Style from Tokyo. The first time I went to Tokyo I went to visit them and I got a seat. They are great guys, very nice and they do amazing stuff.
That’s when I decided to make it more like a Street Tracker. I cut some "useless" brackets from the frame and welded a small bracket for the back fender.
Again I waited too long, so now I don't know what I will do with it, maybe I changed my mind again… ^_^

Wood toy for my lovely baby boy

I made this little toy from oak for my baby boy. I engraved his name and birthday with small carving chisels. Then I put it in special oil.
He loves it, I'm glad. ^_^

I love t-shirts

I love t-shirts, so I thought to create my own t-shirts. Then a friend told me “Why don’t you sell them?”
…My small e-shop was born in November 2010…
http://angeland.spreadshirt.net/
As part of my heart is in Japan, right after the March 11th earthquake occurred, I decided to create the following design and donate the commissions I get with it.
So during this year 2011, and maybe longer, I will donate the commissions I receive for each item sold on this shop to an organization (like the Japanese Red Cross) that helps the victims of the earthquake and the tsunami that hit Japan on March 11th, 2011.

Work on my Daytona

I got this Daytona some years ago. It has a Speed Triple handle and a Sprint front fairing, but I wanted it to look like a Cafe Racer.

I made a aluminum bracket for the meters and added LEDs.

Also I made the headlight brackets, that I anodized in black.

I also put very nice aluminum engine guards from Marco Design.

I put back the original handle bar, a nice small IXIL exhaust and a black UDT and I made a small plate and blinkers holder.
 
But I wanna do more... ^_^
