Some Really Cool Motorcycle Art/Sculpture and a Sweet XS650 tracker.

Thanks to Ted Brecheisen for these really interesting shots.

Hey Steve,

I went to Sheridan, IN last weekend to a very cool place that is like a museum but is also a shop. The XS 650 Yamaha was a stock bike he found in the weeds a couple of blocks from his house. It’s on the way to a great looking flat tracker.

Don Christy makes “cycle art” from junk parts and bicycle frames. Everything is miss-matched. On one piece the v-twin’s cylinders are made from plastic drain pipe. The crankcases on many are made from cake pans. Very creative. More pics are at www.flickr.com/photos/boanerges-indy

Thanks for a great blog,

Wow! That’s my kind of art! Talk about shopcraft as soulcraft! And a great way to make a living too! I really like that style and that XS is sweet! Thanks Much Ted!
