I should specify that this was an anonymous submission. CJG doesn't have nearly such classy taste in art.

That is awesome! Yeah, garage art. Basement art. Never, ever living room art.

Can I point out (since I am the anon here) that this isn't even a realy Harley tank, those are STICK ON letters.

And the crappy panelling is in our very rustic mountain cabin, not in my house.

I can't believe you art snobs. A work of beauty.

I hope that piece has been relegated to his man-cave. Or the backyard shed.

Marinka -

Send me your address and look for a big box from UPS.

I think its fabulous! Why? Because it wasn't once a woodland creature frolicking through a dewy meadow and it wasn't built of beer cans. In manworld, its actually quite ok. (Not ok enough to live in my house... but ok).

Did your husband make this "art"? My ex-boyfriend (strong use of ex), made a bunch of practical things with his hog (his word, not mine) when it became too expensive to fix. He made a lamp like this one, end table, coffee table, candle holders (nothing says romance like a motorcycle part with a candle in it), wall hanging using some gears, lots of little knick-knacky type stuff, etc. He pretty much used the entire bike he has loved for many years, which he thought was really cool. The kicker, he moved out all the old living room stuff and replaced it with his harley-made stuff...and presented it to ME...as a SURPRISE, like I was supposed to be happy?! Moran! That was the beginning of the end.
