If your Dad is an industrial designer and machinist, you can expect to receive some unusual toys. This Honda RC166 model motorcycle belongs to Anna Kraeuter, aged three, the daughter of Portland vintage motorcycle racer Chuck. It’s a perfect ½ scale model that measures just over 3 feet long by 1½ feet high. Working two or three hours a day, Chuck built this model from scratch in 166 consecutive days. “Anna loves the attention she gets when she sits on it,” Chuck tells us. “It doesn’t run, but it has a first gear—so the clutch spins like it would if bump starting.”

Future classic?

Is this a future classic? Maybe. But first loose the electric engine and make it a combustion one.

Floris Velthuis (Arnhem, the Netherlands) is a freelance editorial photographer/writer. As he is a chopper- and custombike freak himself, he loves to write features for motorcycle magazines. Both motorcycles and photography are his passion and he uses professional photo-gear.

I think this Honda and the way it’s photographed is a great match of how we see our blog.

It features a lot of one-off and modified parts like the tank, seat, and engine. It's a '75 Japanese bike, though, it looks like a Brit-bike from the fifties.
