"Four Wheels move the body.
Two wheels move the soul!"

During the warmer months of the year do you find yourself wishing for a sunny weekend so you can lock up the shop and head out on the bike for a tour?  If not then we are pretty sure you know someone that would rather be biking than working.

This project is perfect for creating projects themed around a motorcycle or motorcycle culture in general.  With its panhead motor, skull, gas tank and wings its simple to layout a sign for a motorcycle enthusiast, repair or bike shop.

Of course this project is not limited to bikers so let your imagination take off.  The wings are perfect for laying out a set of pilots wings or adding to other models to create a memorial plaque.

We have designed a few neat features into this project that will make it even easier to use and reuse.  These features include:

  • Ribbon has 3 areas to VCarve text onto and 2 recessed areas allowing you to easily overlap the wings or other models in your library 
  • Garage sign and banner that accepts V-Carving or even the addition of raised text.
  • Garage sign has a flat bottomed dished center so it will accept almost any model and will also let you get the most "Z" depth out of the added model.

Get that CNC busy so you can jump on that bike and go for a ride!
