Powered by a supercharged Chevy LSA V8 with a tube frame and independent front and rear suspension, the interior of the far-from-stock 1948 farm workhorse is – for some reason – panelled with 5,000 year old Irish bog oak.
A tribute to Moto Guzzi co-founder Giovanni Ravelli, everything bar the forks and frame of the donor bike has been custom made from hand-beaten aluminium with one-off shifter and brake lever designs, with closely adherence to a ‘What would Giovanni do?’ sensibility.
Bamford’s ‘dark Bentley’ uses Miltary Grade Titanium Coating and Graphite Particle Coating with blacked out wing vents and grille, a ‘darkware’ interior including seats covered in leather and anthracite cloth with a carbon fibre watch case in place of the usual cocktail compartment.
The Alternative Limb Project offers, well, alternatives to the common or garden prostetics available to amputees and those with missing limbs looking to make more of a statement. ALP sez:
The Alternative Limb Project offers a personal and friendly bespoke service, which provides unique prosthetics to blend in with the body or stand out as a unique piece of art, reflecting the wearer’s imagination, personality and interests. We will involve the wearer in all stages of the process from conception of ideas to the final work. An alternative-style limb can help to break down social barriers, delight the eye and provide an unusual talking point.
