Bimota Tesi



Here is my carving of the Bimota Tesi 1D. A very rare and exclusive Italian bike with an innovative frame and front suspension set up as you can see from the photos.



What I like most about this piece is how clearly you can see the grain of the wood working throughout the block. It demonstrates that the bike is carved from a single block of wood but gets to show how lovely the wood is and how the grain flows through it.


This was carved around the same time as I was carving the Eddie Lawson carving. The bike is carved in Lime wood.The veneer used for the headlight is Birdseye Maple and the veneer for the logos on the side is Madrona Burr.
