An homage to a genius
Designing a super-duper custom bike is never a walk in the park, but, it is always very satisfying. This project was a dream for me, once I got passed the nerves involved with taking design cues from the work of a master, that is. The real challenge came from trying to make an assortment of colors all work on a small canvas, a task I feel was greatly influenced by the paints eggshell finish which was expertly finished by Eric at Colorworks.
One of my favorite elements of this build was the opportunity to apply some of the same logic used on the Land Rover project and apply it to the design and build of the bike. The only part I did not like about this build was the fact that Rob did not let me ride it before sending it off to its rightful owner, maybe next time!
