been working on a few scoots lately, the bottom one is mine after a full engine strip and rebuild and a bare metal paint job, the blue one belongs to a customer i made few trick parts including a spotlight switch housing and an inline twostroke can holder. didn't do anything to the top one but it was just too pretty to leave out

couple of new recycled stoves

Click for bigger (205 kb)

the stove made for my yurt, it has front opening hatch with  a window and a separate door underneath for getting rid of the ash,  the handles are turned from  ashwood i cut from the garden last year, the main body is made up of three different recycled  gas cylinders, and the porthole is fashioned from a drum kit ride cymbal. the heat this generates  is tremendous the body can get cherry red if you open up the butterfly valve in the bottom door.
