Fall is starting to come to the Pacific Northwest and people seem to be doing a bit more remodeling instead of upgrading to another house. We were able to salvage a bunch of these steel balls that were made as part of fence decorations. It dawned on us that these looked like heads. Here's one of these balls that I turned into a face.
This is Billy Biker. His body is created from a crankshaft from a Toro lawn tractor from a local golf course. I sculpted his motorcycle from pieces of rebar, round steel, and custom wheels that I cut pirate symbols in from sheet metal. He will be at a show soon!
