Please post away your version of a bike/motorbike or have a go at making the one I've posted.
Looking forward to seeing all the different versions.

Its a wet and miserable Bank Holiday Monday so in true tradition I have mucked about with a motorbike, actually off out to the garage in a bit to sort out a real one. This is less mucky though.
Here is an attempt at this challenge  :o

I have placed my order with Graham for black 260 so as soon as I get them I will do some of the other bikes I do. But the blacks I have at the moment are bursting as I blow them up they are on there way to the bin as I speak.

Billy love the chopper.

Billy

Your bike has everything you need in a sculpture to my way of thinking as it's;
Quick, Easy & Impressive which then let's you get on with entertaining the crowd.
I will definately be trying this one, thanks for posting it Billy ;)

This is a Bike I made about at least 9 years ago as the pic was taken in my old house (not digital had to scan it). It uses my favourite silver balloons for the engine and pipes. I have just a few left they were made by BSA (long rest there soul). The ones I have left are at least 7 years old and on the occasions I use them they never seem to burst.

I had a go at Billy’s bike with 260s and a 5" round. Quite happy with this for a first attempt.
Blacks have just arrived :) so nice black tyres from now on.
