It took me a good while to strip, sand, assemble, and paint these lamps (I have 3)

$40 shipped in the USA
$50 shipped anywhere else






Feel free to comment on this. I like feedback, good and bad, about my products

ryan,

i think it is pretty cool. how about a headlight as a shade, and then it could be an indirect light?

cheers,

texy

p.s.- i always wanted to make a flashlight out of a ducati single tower shaft.

hm i didnt even think about the headlight bucket as a shade...that would make it look and act more like a desk work lamp. i might try that. thanks

thats the coolest lamp i ever saw, if i had the cash i'd buy one in a heartbeat. i did the same sort of thing with a ford camshaft and timing cover as the base.
