I made this World War II motorcycle with a side car out of pine, walnut, and maple. It features spoke wheels, a headlight, leather seat in the side car, walnut seat on the motorcycle, two handmade leather saddlebags and a scabbard, a spare tire, turned-on-the-lathe wooden hand grips, and it even has a Thompson machine gun made 100% from wood. The compartment under the spare tire opens for storage. I’ve made a lot of motorcycles in my lifetime. This one seemed to take forever, but I think it’s one of a kind and my best so far.

Two things -
some would frown on the paint – I think it’s great
I also thought it was a model til I saw the last picture – never thought it would be a working model ‹(•¿•)›

my only critisism – if this is really a Harley, the inside of the tail pipe should be black lol

Lastly, darn nice job, you should be proud !!
