In the beginning there was an engine, often ill, and ready for a change… Nothing could be clearer than the direction I needed to take…
But from the moment the first frame tubes are bent and positioned in white around the engine, the machine itself starts to take part in the decisions and lets me know what is expected. You can’t force these things. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach. The bike knows what is good for her!
In trying to conserve the bikes original features (if indeed they were provided...), my work focuses on the aesthetics, the harmony of curves and the attention to detail. While some cases are more challenging than others, I believe everything has potential.
