Japanese artist Chicara Nagata spent approximately 7,550 hours hand crafting each of these motorcycles which are on display at the ippodo gallery in New York City until January 31, 2009. Using ancient Harley Davidson and Honda moped engines Chicara has integrated contemporary craftsmanship and first-class engineering to create functional motorcycles that transcend into the world of art.

I know that I want one of these machines, but I believe that the price tag is around US$1 million each. A bit out of my price range. However, as i will be in NY next month I’ll try to get to the gallery and do a little bit of drooling.
