Finding Precision...

Unique or "One Off" motorcycles and choppers are often a reflection of the builder that had his or her hands on each individual part.  A builders passion for motorcycles can be seen in the both the details and the overall design.  Time, experience, and immersion into the life is a recipe for aesthetic designs that will create that all enchanting "wow" factor.  The passion for motorcycles is sometimes the only thing holding our industry afloat these days.  Passion is certainly a driving force from the outside view point for many builders, but it is precision that separates craftmenship in this industry.  Precision is not simply born from passion.  It is not enough to simply be passionate about motorcycles and engulfed in a life of grease and gears.  The need for precision comes from a deeper place... an obsessive place... That place where money and time hold no value, and only truth exists...  It is a place with no fame and no recognition, and those who seek to find it do so because they must... For those who understand, will always find gratification and reward in their search for precision, no matter how arduous the journey.  The rest however, will hold to passion alone and forgive themselves for the shortcuts.

Manifesto

It is the pervading law of all things organic and inorganic,
Of all things physical and metaphysical,
Of all things human and all things super-human,
Of all true manifestations of the head,
Of the heart, of the soul,
That the life is recognizable in its expression,
That form ever follows function. This is the law.
                                            
                                                      -Louis Sullivan


Form vs Function Rant

This rant is derived from my personal opinion of many custom motorcycles shows...

I'm all for artistic expression in the creation of ground up builds. In fact, I believe it is a critical aspect of developing ones style as a builder and craftsman.  But as a builder where do you draw the line between artistic form and engineered function?  It is my opinion that there is no line if the build is to be considered a motorcycle.  The artistic form of the build must absolutely follow the engineered function of a motorcycle... You have to build a bike first!!! If function is thrown out the window in lieu of artistic expression then we are simply visual artists constructing metal sculptures. If someone wants to construct a metal art piece that exaggerates the form of a motorcycle while departing from its function the way Pablo Picasso painted content while departing from visual form, then by all means misalign the wheels, build a frame with no downtubes, engrave every inch of metal, and leave the fluids out. Then, Stick it in an art gallery like MoMA (not a motorcycle show) and call it what it is. An impressionistic representation and an exaggeration in form... Go ahead and be an artist, but don't call yourself a builder if you cant build a bike that rides straight hands free at 100mph!!!!!!
