But now it can live on as a gift for your favorite moto enthusiast — or yourself.
Retired components from up to three different vintage motorcycles make up these handsome, sturdy creations. The lamps are constructed using a spring, shock absorber, brake rotor and transmission gear — all welded together to add a bit of quirky moto flair to any room.
They average around 18 inches tall with a base measuring between 11 and 12 inches across.
Each lamp is handmade using available parts, so yours will differ somewhat from the photo. Scratches, dings and other imperfections are present on all the lamps due to the nature of recycled components. I love the story they tell, but I'm happy to answer questions before you order and snap pics before shipping to make sure you love it.
Upon placing your order, let us know if you have any direction for us and we'll do our best to match you up with parts that fit the bill. As with our other lamps, we'll post pics online of the parts we choose for your lamp. Soon after you order, you can check http://classifiedlamps.posterous.com where you'll see parts for all the lamps we're working on, individually labeled by owner. If you don't like what you see, let us know. Keep in mind that the photos will show the parts in their pre-Classified state. Ignore the grease and dirt.
Please note, the shade is NOT included.
Turnaround time is usually four to six weeks.
