Not a Car…

Lego Harley Davidson Softail Heritage Custom

…But so very very shiny. This magnificently mirrored Harley Davidson Softail Heritage motorcycle comes from previous bloggee, TLCB Master MOCer, and all-round vehicle-building legend Dennis Glaasker aka BrickonWheels. Showing just how good third-party brick chroming can look, there’s more to see of Dennis’  beautiful Harley on Flickr by clicking here.

Jawa Powa

Lego Technic Jawa 350 Motorcycle

This Eastern European oddity is an air-cooled Jawa 350 motorcycle, a bike that was launched back in the ’50s, yet is still in production today. This neat Technic recreation of the Czechoslovakian motorbike comes from František Hajdekr and there’s more to see at his photostream via the link.

Bella Moto

Lego Vespa

Is there anything prettier than a girl on a Vespa?* Nope. Not unless you’re the new White House Press Secretary (whereby the prettiest thing ever witnessed is President Donald Trump, period). Previous bloggee ZetoVince may not have built a girl to accompany his Vespa, but his Lego recreation of the iconic Italian scooter is absolutely gorgeous. There’s more to see of this beautiful model on Flickr, where you can also vote for it to become an official LEGO set via LEGO Ideas – click the link above to go for a ride.

*We’ve done the research, see here. And here. And here. Blogging is tough sometimes.

And here.

A Motorcycle Built for Two

Lego Technic BMW R60 Sidecar

Maxime Cheng‘s beautiful classic BMW R60 motorcycle has appeared here before (twice in fact), and it’s now been joined by an equally stunning sidecar. Easily one of the finest Lego motorbikes we’ve ever found it’s a build that’s definitely worth a closer look.

Maxime is hoping the design will become an official LEGO set via the LEGO Ideas platform, and with BMW now an official partner of LEGO with the launch of the new Technic 42063 BMW R 1200 Adventure set we think this is highly possible. You can check out all of the brilliant images and add your vote on LEGO Ideas via the link above.

C is for Christmas

Lego Nimbus Type C Motorcycle

We’re back, and we hope you’re all having a throughly excellent Christmas! We’re kicking off that slightly awkward period between Christmas and New Year with this, Henrik Jensen‘s gorgeous classic Nimbus Type C motorcycle.

Producing from 1919 until 1960, Nimbus were a successful Danish motorbike manufacturer, providing bikes to the military, civil and public markets. This beautiful 1950s Type C is one of the last Nimbuses made, and Henrik’s Model Team recreation is one of the finest Lego bikes we’ve found this year.

You can check out all the images of the Type C at Henrik’s photostream – click the link above to take a look.

R60 Return

Lego BMW R60 Motorbike

This gorgeous BMW R60 motorcycle by Maxime Cheng has appeared here at TLCB before, but so beautiful is this latest image that we thought it worth a reappearance. Maxime’s photograph shows exactly how a Lego creation should be captured, and also what we look for here at TLCB in order to be able to blog a model. If you’d like to see your creation appear here (or on any of the major Lego blogs), presentation is everything. We’ve compiled some handy hints on how to take photos as good as Maxime’s in our ‘Photo Like a Pro’ tutorial. Click here to read the tips and tricks, and you can see more of Maxime’s stunning BMW R60 shown above by clicking the first link in this text.

Pigs Might Glide

Lego Harley Davidson Electra Glide Police Bike

This magnificent Harley Davidson Electra Glide motorbike, in full Police Department specification, was found on Flickr today. It’s the work of previous bloggee Andre Pinto and it’s been beautifully chromed by Bubul Chrome to make it shinier than any LEGO set. There’s lots more to see at Andre’s photostream – click here to dial 9-1-1.

There’s more to see at Redfern’s photostream, and you can see all of his builds to feature here at The Lego Car Blog by clicking here.

Two for Tuesday

Lego BMW R60 Motorcycle

It’s double date night here at TLCB, and as it’s this writer’s turn to attend it’s looking like he’ll have to pay another girl at the bus stop. Or put a call into your Mom. Anyhoo, let’s put the evening conundrum aside because we have two wonderful Model Team motorbikes to share with you today.

First up (above) is this glorious classic BMW R60 by Flickr’s Maxime Cheng, who has recreated the original machine superbly using a mix of Technic and Model Team styles, easily becoming one of our favourite bikes of the year so far.

Today’s second ride (below) comes from Flickr’s Andre Pinto, with this fantastically ridiculous Harley Davidson ‘Bagger’. Although beautifully built it looks like an absolute pig to ride, but seeing as this writer might be calling up your Mom later let’s not dwell on that. You can see more of both bikes on Flickr via the links above – click the links to make the jump.

Golden Ride

Lego Moto Guzzi Motorcycle

Nope, your Mom hasn’t started wearing that blonde wig for her nighttime rendezvous again, we’re referring to this; Andre Pinto’s pimped classic Moto Guzzi Le Mans 3, complete with a gloriously golden customised LEGO Technic frame.

It’s certainly a unique look, perhaps the motorcycle equivalent of this. Or this. Or even this. But probably this. Whatever, as this writer is a reserved Brit it’s not really his kind of bike, but it is an exquisite build. There’s more to see of Andre’s superbly detailed Moto Guzzi at his Flickr photostream, or via the Eurobricks discussion forum here.

A Close Shave

Lego Motorbike and Sidecar

This magnificent motorcycle and sidecar from previous bloggee redfern1950s probably has nothing to do with our favourite plasticine duo, but it’s close enough to allow us to tenuously include this link! You can see more of redfern’s gorgeous bike at his photostream via the link above.

Pork Chop

Lego Police Chopper Motorbike

Redfern1950s continues his run of beautifully designed motorcycles with this absolutely gorgeous police-issue chopper. Redfern is very probably the king of motorbike detailing at the moment, and his latest work also comes in civilian flavour too (see below), but that one doesn’t allow for a witty title. You can see more of both builds at Redfern’s photostream – click here to make the jump to Flickr.

Classic Cafe Custom

Lego BMW R100 Motorbike

This neat BMW R100-based cafe racer was found on Flickr today and it comes from previous bloggee Andre Pinto. Andre’s used a clever mish-mash of Technic and System parts to create his motorbike and there lots of superb imagery to see at his photostream. Click the link above for the full gallery.

Easy Rider

Lego Hardtail Chopper

Only a few short days after his last appearance here at TLCB, redfern1950s returns with another stunningly creative motorcycle. This one’s a hard-tail chopper and it uses some of LEGO’s weirder parts brilliantly. See what you can spot via the link above.

Copper Chopper

Lego Chopper Motorcycle

This gloriously impractical yet breathtakingly beautiful motorcycle is the work of Flickr’s redfern1950s. Copper probably isn’t the most suitable material for a bike, seeing as it gets very hot and it also goes green, but gosh is it pretty. It’s a shame its primary use is unseen in your central heating system really. Redfern’s put it to much better aesthetic use though, and you can see more of this stunning creation at his photostream via the link above.
