I haven’t showed you the back of my beaded motorcycle in awhile. Most of the stitches are covered with one piece of felt. The rear wheel and my peyote stitch copper exhaust pipes are finally stitched on. I have started to line the edges with some black felt. And, I stitched on some beaded electrical wires using black bugle beads…

It looks like I am almost done, but I still have to create a rear-view mirror, add some more beadwork to the front wheel, maybe add some more orange seed beads, and I still have to stitch on the tire treads!😮

There is still so much to bead, that I might have to work on this a little over the weekend! I also need to think about whether this will be a stand-alone beaded bike, or a part of a larger piece… Only time will tell…😉

  1. >Being a biker babe myself (only I ride a more subdued Suzuki 800 sports touring bike), I really LOVE this one… well, ok, I love ’em all… Secretly I want a red bike… Uh-oh… you awaken a dream… Thanks for showing the picture of the back. Rumble on… Robin A.

  2. >I dunno….Two things occurred to me as I saw the back of the design.#1 That’s what my ‘good’ sewing looks like….#2 I felt like I was peeking up someone’s dress….(boneman! Shame on you!)
