Wayne Ransom loves motorcycles, is an occasional bike builder, and found a new outlet for his creativity. Static engine sculptures straying from the original mechanical design with a more simplistic and flowing design. As the engine is itself in movement…His first series is based/inspired by the Suzuki Hayabusa engine (soon a V-Twin) that he is going to decline in a variety of sculptures ranging from free-standing to table-top size,
For a “sand cast” look all engine is bead blasted then clear coated to facilitate cleaning. On this sculpture, exhaust is formed out of Titanium with 184 weld joints that equal 97 feet of weld length. Then a little bit of color is added to give those welds some character. The end pipe is sculpted from aircraft aluminum, mirror polished and cleared. The pedestal is made out of stainless steel tube with aluminum panels. Dimensions: Length 36″ (91.4cm) Width 34″ (86.3cm) Height 55″ (139.7cm). You can see this sculpture more in details at Wayne Ransom Velocity Collection, and of course it’s for sale.
