Form vs Function Rant

This rant is derived from my personal opinion of most custom motorcycles shows...

I'm all for artistic expression in the creation of ground up builds. In fact, I believe it is a critical aspect of developing ones style as a builder and craftsman.  But as a builder where do you draw the line between artistic form and engineered function?  It is my opinion that there is no line if the build is to be considered a motorcycle.  The artistic form of the build must absolutely follow the engineered function of a motorcycle... You have to build a bike first!!! If function is thrown out the window in lieu of artistic expression then we are simply visual artists constructing metal sculptures. If someone wants to construct a metal art piece that exaggerates the form of a motorcycle while departing from its function the way Pablo Picasso painted content while departing from visual form, then by all means misalign the wheels, build a frame with no downtubes, engrave every inch of metal, and leave the fluids out. Then, Stick it in an art gallery like MoMA (not a motorcycle show) and call it what it is. An impressionistic representation and an exaggeration in form... Go ahead and be an artist, but don't call yourself a builder if you cant build a bike that rides straight hands free at 100mph!!!!!!

American Machinery

There is something romantic about designing and producing a part on a manual machine...
Timeless and classic

It is the pervading law of all things organic and inorganic,
Of all things physical and metaphysical,
Of all things human and all things super-human,
Of all true manifestations of the head,
Of the heart, of the soul,
That the life is recognizable in its expression,
That form ever follows function. This is the law.
