VERY cool. I've never seen anything like them. Apparently watchmakers like motorcycles! Me too

That brings back an old memory. My dad kept a band-aid can on his desk for many years. In the can was the parts of a pocket watch. He said he kept it to remind him to never again mess with something he didn't know a darn thing about. Good lesson. Here endeth the epistle. Mike

Hello Joseph, and all,
I wish I could take credit for making these, but alas, the pictures were forwarded to me in an email and I do not know the clever person that made them. I think the person that made them has a great sense of humor and an inventive mind.

I think someone's got too much time on their hands. No pun intended!

Hi Gail,
If some precious stones were put in the mini bikes maybe they would be worth a bit(suggestion only)
Very creative!
