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)

The art and Science of CNC Waterjet and Laser Cutting   Major custom metalwork company in Brooklyn does some beautiful laser cutting, water-jet cutting, and bending for architecture, art, and interiors. Check out their videos too. - Evan


Laser cut artwork + bicycles + cameras = awesome
If attached to a bike wheel and filmed in motion this intricate paper cutout will animate to create lovely fluid movements; cogs turning and clouds growing and the like…I intend for these to be presented as art objects as in the pictures. I must stress, as I have many times with this project, this is about animation. It is not possible to see this with the naked eye. If you stick this on your bike you will not be able to see it unless you are filming it, I will include instructions on how to film it but I really see these more as pieces of art. - Alex
