Craft: The beaded Buell.

The Lone Beader has created this amazing hand crafted beadwork Buell. Composed of thousands of glass seed beads, sterling silver, metal hardware, and vinyl the bike took 20 hrs per week for 6 weeks to complete. A brilliant touch is the use of zippers for tires.

Not just some silly kitsh, this is a thoughtfully worked out and beatifully crafted piece of art. The complete blow by blow of the project can be seen here.
