Chicara Moped Racer
By James Grahame
This motorcycular work of art started life as a frumpy little 1966 Honda moped. The 1.5 HP motor and transmission did, anyway. Everything else came from the chrome-plated imagination of designer Chicara Nagata. This machine and others like it will be featured in Chicara Liquid Chrome at ippodo gallery (NYC) from November 7 through January 31, 2009. Follow the link for more electroplated awesomeness.
