This Motorcycle Engine necklace is probably one of the most intricate and detailed pieces of jewelry I've made - it's an exact replica of a 1940’s Panhead engine from Harley Davidson. Just a wee bit smaller.

All the components of the original engine are there - the carburetor looks incredible, the tiny valves and cooling fins on the cylinders, and all the details on the engine block exactly where they should be. We even managed to get the tiny bolts holding the engine housing in there too. The back of the pendant was left flat and beautifully polished so it's super comfortable to wear. I just wanna fire this thing up and tear off into the sunset, and you know what – I just might.

This piece is a bit of a departure for me and I can’t claim too many of the design props for this one - those I happily pass on to Harley, and Mike with his CAD skills. The wax was then carved by a special machine, in 10 micron (that’s very small) passes at a time. It took about 10 hours to complete the carving, and the results are mighty impressive.

Once cast in the finest white bronze, the engine is then silver plated, and had to be polished very carefully so as not to damage any of those fine details. Finally the engine was given an aged look to really bring out all those fantastic details.

The engine measures 1 1/4" (32mm) high (not including the jump ring) by just over 1" (29mm) across its flying V, and I've hung this one on a 24" antique silver chain.


It worked for the guys in Easy Rider, now it’s your turn. Saddle up.
