Throttle Lamp: Yamaha Clutch Cover Base

Here is the latest throttle lamp. I changed it up a bit on this one. At a recent trip to Zdeno Cycle looking for new parts I came across this Yamaha clutch cover that I believe is off of a YZ 125/250. I thought it would make a good base for a throttle lamp. The lamp post mounts out of the kick start shaft hole. The case has a nice worn patina to it. The lamp post has clutch plates welded on resembling a sphere.

Sprocket Wall Piece

I finished up my 2nd sprocket wall piece recently. This one is a little larger than the last one at 44" x 22" and the design is a little bit more open. These are fun to make laying out the sprockets so that the teeth line  up and tack welding them together. The sprockets are raw metal with clear coat and the border/ frame is 3/4" angle painted black. There are washers welded to each corner for mounting so you could put it up horizontally or vertically.

Retail Location: Rock Paper Scissors

Kelly and Andy Warne (and their 2 daughters) are a great family that started their Rock Paper Scissors Artisan Gift Shop last year out of their house outside of Ayr, Ontario. They recently made the move to Hamilton and have relocated their business to the historic Hamilton Cotton Factory. They've changed things up a bit to also offer coffee made in their very cool pour over stands.
I was fortunate enough to have some of my pieces for sale in their shop last year and I'm continuing with them in their new location. Please go check out their shop at 11 Landsdowne Ave, Hamilton, Ontario and see some MOTO-cycle Metal Works pieces in person.

2016 AMO MX Trophies

I had the opportunity to make the year end special awards trophies for the Amateur Motocross Ontario series. There were 2 Rising Star (mini & big bikes), Hard Charger and Rider of the Year. I stuck with a similar design as last year for the Rising Star awards with the sprockets & chain  with a chain star at the top. The 2 other awards
The awards were handed out after the final round of racing with a big party at Motopark. Thanks again to Ryan Gauld and the AMO team

Throttle lamp

Here's my latest throttle lamp. The base is a rear sprocket and transmission gear. The copper shade of the gear goes well with the orange ProTaper grip. A timing sprocket mounts the cable stop for the function of the throttle. A sparkplug shade nut tops it off. This lamp is sold and heading to its new home in California.

Cam shaft business card holder

I finished this up a while ago but I've been slacking on updating the website. 
This business card holder turned out pretty cool. I think the cam is out of a Honda CRF motocross bike. Two transmission gears for a base and a small oil pump gear for the card retainer. For sale at $40
