Absolutely "One of a Kind" – Handmade Motorcycle 

These pictures just can’t do justice to the colours and the "depth" of the paintwork, and one could only describe this handmade motorcycle telephone as a work of art.

The workmanship and the finish are first class and we can only speculate as to the amount of time that it would have taken to turn an idea into this phone.


When a shape is handcrafted in fibreglass and finished with a very glossy finish some imperfections would normally be expected. Not in this though; where one curve meets with one from another angle, everything flows in smooth lines and is perfectly symmetrical. 


Obviously made by a true motorcycle enthusiast and according to the nameplate underneath, it was made as a gift in 1991. The maker is unknown, but certainly deserves congratulations for the result of his/her efforts.



Another Handmade – With Timber Inlay

Another handmade creation that could possibly have taken weeks to complete is this "inlayed" timber phone. The screw on mouthpiece and earpiece caps would have also required special crafting skills to ensure that the external shape blended well to the rest of the handset with the caps screwed on snug. In a similar manner to the previous phone, a standard dial phone’s components are simply housed inside.
