Lego Man Hotrods…

During the winter months, and especially after a huge snow, the shop gets pretty quiet.  No one wants to go out in that stuff.  Sometimes the mind wanders, and if there is a lego man laying around in need of a ride, you have to build one.

Lego Man Hotrod

This hotrod was a 2 day build.  It took a day looking at o-rings to figure out the tires, and from there it took on a life of its own.  Finding glue to put plastic and metal together was a challenge, but found the best solution…. JB Plasticweld.  That stuff will glue anything together, and it is strong bond.

Lotus Motorcycles

The first motorcycles to wear the Lotus logo have hit the streets at the end of 2014.  To say the design is stunning  is quite an understatement, the designer used to work for Bugatti.  His aim was brutal power with elegance and style.  What a combination.

The Lotus C-01 will be powered by KTM’s RC8 R superbike engine pushing 200 horsepower, and will be built in Germany by Kodewa, who already builds Lotus’ LMP racer.
