A Dream "TheFatBoy" Sculpture


I would like you to meet Clive and Steve known as "The Twins" who had a dream, they not only had the dream, they made it come true. Their dream was to make a sculpture of a Fatboy (Harley Davidson) and capture a worldly manifestation of  Human Freedom. It turned out to be twice the size of a real life bike and weighs in at a mere 11016lbs  which is 4.5 metric tons and 5 US tons. Hard to believe that it started out as a 11" model!!
Clive and Steve have known each other for over 20 years and became known as the twins due to their disparate heights, and the film that followed sealed their nickname.  They chose a Harley Davidson being the most recognised  bike in the world.   So here are a few pictures  off

"THEFATBOY"




















To read the full story and see the process which in it's self  was complex to say the least, rubber moulding, wax casting, ceramic shell to name a few, and to follow it's trail through America and where it now sits in Milwaukee. http://www.fatboysculpture.com/index.html
They are planning to sell it now and move on to their next project, and I can't wait to see what they come up with  I take my hat of to you both. That was some dream.
