Dmitry Khristenko makes his incredible miniatures of motorcycles, automobiles using watch parts. For me such kind of art is the same as jewelry art.

I just read an article about a cargo van that was separated from a truck in the Japan tsunami, floated all the way to British Columbia where it beached, and they found what I think was a Harley Sportster lashed down inside.

They found the owner in Japan and are returning it, they say a group may restore it. It was totally corroded.

I wish I could get that link to open. I’m a bit of a watch collector/enthusiast.

That OK, but what about making watches out of motorcycle parts? THAT I’d like to see!

Now that's ART.
It takes skill, patience and hard work and the result is beautiful.
Not like some other so-called art that only critics can love.

That's more of a "chipper" than a "chopper"!   :-)
