Steelborn Choppers makes motorcycles. Glorious, hand-built, one-of-a-kind motorcycles. Operating out of Brooklyn, NY, the company gives intense attention to details of each bike:

Steelborn Choppers are rolling metal creations powered by American V twin engines.
Hours of dedication are spent to design and then to precisely fabricate & refine each part.
Absolutely no compromises are made when it comes to quality and the length of time it takes for each build.
It's all "one part at a time, one bike at a time" with a "total hands-on" philosophy that goes into the craft of each individual custom bike. (via)

This is a short animation showing a simplified SolidWorks model of the Morgan Press clamping a blank mold shut.



I started modeling it yesterday before I left, and finished it this morning. I would say the total modeling time was about 3 hours. The oddest part of the whole experience was probably modeling a part in 3D based off of a drawing from 1977. I can only imagine what CAD programs were like at that time!
