Old Bike Australasia - - OUT’N’ABOUT -

The things people do. TREVOR JONES sent us this photo (be­low left) of his lat­est project – a 2/3 scale com­pos­ite model of a 1930s In­dian Four en­gine. Trevor says, “It took over 1,200 hours to build and has over 870 in­di­vid­ual pieces in it. It is made from MDF, pine, PVC pipe, body­filler, an old credit card, a Corn Flakes box, a chop­stick, ball point pens, a pen­cil, bi­cy­cle spokes, pieces of a base­ball bat, twist ties from loaves of bread, a cof­fee tin lid, fenc­ing wire, metal from a clothes horse, cop­per pipe, part of a broom han­dle, a plas­tic mea­sur­ing cup, the throat of a vase, the belt from a vac­uum cleaner, and the han­dle of an old wash­ing trol­ley”. Re­mark­able as this achieve­ment is, it is not the first time Trevor has con­structed 2/3 scale work­ing mod­els. His past ef­forts in­clude a Har­ley-David­son board track racer and a vet­eran Ariel with side­car.
