The kick-stand was fabricated by McGowan Metal Fabrications and utilizes a stock Dyna Wide Glide kick-stand. The PEACE SIGN was fabricated using hardened case steel utilizing the TIG welding process for a clean look.  It was finished with hand sanding and polishing using 1200 grit wet/dry sand paper and fiber cloth, which prepped it for chroming. 


The “IMAGINE” heel-kick was laser cut into stainless steel utilizing a 4000 watt laser machine and then finished by graining the metal with 400 grit sand paper and polishing with fiber cloth for the chromer.  It was welded using a TIG process. 


The entire fabrication took over 40 hours to create.   Chrome finishing done by 21st Century Finishes, Inc.

These were originally chrome. The chrome has been removed and the aluminum sticks were painted by Chris Cruz Artistry to make them look like the real thing – wood drum sticks.

The drum sticks linkage was fabricated by McGowan Metal Fabrications.The shift linkage utlizes a J & P shift linkage as its base. The drum sticks are made from 5052 aircraft grade aluminum. Utilizing a metal lathe machine, it took over 11 hours to create both sticks. The sticks are attached to the linkage by a cleverly hidden bolt which is adjustable from the rear of the linkage. After the sticks were fabricated, 1/2 of the material of the stick closest to the viewer was ball milled out so it would be recessed in closer to the other stick. This detail provides a much cleaner look to the piece.

The shift linkage was then milled to receive the small bolt which is inserted from the rear of the linkage so the viewer cannot see it. Milling a slot into the linkage was also a functional part of the creation because it provides the flexibility of adjusting the sticks for clearance regarding the length of travel for shifting. It took another 16 hours to do the final milling on the sticks and yet another 7 hours for milling the bolt slot into the shift linkage which is a total of 37 hours to create this one-of-a-kind piece.
