Every new model by Pere Tarragó is an absolute work of art, the meticulous attention to detail, the appearance of not being a model at all, but a real motorcycle, somehow magically shrunken to model proportions. His latest work, shown here, is a BMW R32. He sent a series of photos documenting the entire construction process which is truly amazing.
Pere says this 1/5 scale model was constructed over a period of 100 days working 6 hours per day. He constructed the frame in steel tubing, he made his own molds and cast the engine in aluminum, the levers and pedals all work, the brake shoes work, the suspension, the clutch and transmission, everything functions like the full size motorcycle.
Amazing craftsmanship from a master. He’s done a series of models, some we’ve covered before, but you really should check out his website and see his other work. Very, very nice.
