Homemade Bike 2 (work In Progress)

by Robert Westerlund

I built this bike/chopper moped from a lot of different parts between 1967 and 1968. Some 15 years later, in 1982, before I sold the bike, I went to a professional photo studio and took a few photos of me and the bike (how crazy is that?!) But today, 27 years later, the photos have lost their original freshness. Unfortunately, I don´t have the negatives, but I have CS3 ... >>> Please feel free to leave comments without voting :)

    Thanks for the tip John! I have zero experience of Topaz or Lucis, but perhaps I should try one of these Photoshop plug-ins some day? Right now and first of all I would like to be blessed with a bit of Inspiration, which probably (in my case) is the most

    this would really work with the overprocessed illustartive look, maybe topaz or lucis?

    Hi and thanks Margaret! Simultaneous thoughts about birds and dreams, what a coincidence! But can it be more than just a fluke? Maybe the cosmos is like a huge database, where everything is connected to everything else. What if we sometimes can receive in

    Robert, thank you for sharing your thoughts. “Places where you’ve never been (in while?) and a birds’s perspective “ I was working on an image that I was going to call Night Birds…but like a dream it vanished too soon. But I am keeping it in mind. Than

    Thanks Urban! Visst blir man nostalgisk, ha! Den här (otrimmade) bågen hade en gammal Crescent-ram från senare 50-tal, en tank av märket Apollo (köpt för 5 kr) samt diverse annat som man som tonåring kunde komma över. Vissa delar, t.ex. hastighetsmätaren

    Själv hade jag en post-gul Monark med bensintanken fäst på paket hållaren. Motorn var en "något" trimmad Sachs . Fan, man blir ju nostalgisk.

    Thanks Ricky! Unfortunately the bike is gone/sold a long time ago and can for that reason never be exposed in a museum. It´s a pity since my bike was armed with the first 50cc (47cc/1 hp) motor in the world that had four gears and a foot pedal, etc. A

    Thanks Margaret! Yeah, I ♥ CS3! You know, Margaret, the handlebar (apehanger) is actually more comfortable than it looks. The banana seat (fairly comfortable) is 100 % my own design. It´s made of oak wood, stuffing and sheep fur, which I had to

    I understand your big smile now my friend, despite your new kind of artwork here! Nice and original chopper, you may take in consideration to expose it in a museum! :)

    It appears to bring back good memories. Changing it might remove the nostalgic feel to. The handlebars and the banana seat made me think back, too. Yeah CS3!!!

    Thanks Simon! Hm, I'm not sure that I will present a final image. We'll see. To have succeeded in removing all yellow hue/tint, makes me happy right now :)
