Well this is my first post in this section. So now and then I post some of my models in the trucks session, but this time i have created a motorbike out of lego's.

 

This Harley Davidson FLH Bagger is inspired by the famous 'Red Baron' Fokker DR.1 WW I triplane flown by Manfred von Richthofen.
Build in Lego scale 1:10 it features many custom electroplated chrome bricks, and the same color scheme as the original aircraft.

 

hope you like it

Thanks Bob.

 

I haven't meassured it, but it is around 9 to 10 inches i guess. The number of bricks will be around 500. Of those a fair share is chromed afterwards with real chrome, not just a paintjob. It took me about 4 weeks to build. I actually have a few more bikes standing around, I love to build them.

Tell me more. Is that built using only "regular" Legos? Or is that some sort of special Lego set?

Indeed they are all genuine bricks. They only thing not standard is the chroming. ABS can be electroplated with true chrome, and I have a batch of bricks chromed so now and then.

My builds are always from scratch and have nothing to do with Lego sets. I use Lego as I like the bricks as building material.

That's amazing! Great work! I had Legos when they first came out and all you could make was buildings. They've come a long way! Your bikes are works of art!
