Felix Götze rocking horse

Motorcycle rocking horse by Felix Götze
A little bit of fun for the weekend: German designer Felix Götze has created this rocking horse from old motorcycle parts. Apparently it’s for a little lad called Otto Komei, who is fascinated by the choppers coming out of the workshop opposite his house. Götze installed a two-stroke thumper of 150 cc with a slash-cut exhaust, because “everybody rides V2 four-stroke”. That sprung leather saddle is a neat touch, and so is the airbrushing by artist Thomas Weber. Who’s a lucky boy? [Images and concept copyright Felix Götze.]

    That kid’s poor ears, he will be deaf by the time he can get on a real bike

  • Andrew

    Gotze…that’s an unfortunate name.

    Ah, Andrew, you beat me to it! (by a lot!)

    Um, that decorative line painting on the tubing and headlamp body is called ‘pin striping’. There is no apparent ‘air brushing’ on that rig. FYI

  • You’re right eB—Thomas Weber is known as an airbrush specialist, but in this case, it’s almost certainly pinstriping.
