Part of constructing art is reaching into the past. Asking yourself what has worked before and using that knowledge to bridge both the old and the new into something spectacular is no easy task. Just ask Michael Woolaway of Venice Beach-based Woolie’s Workshop who recently completed this tribute to the 1957 Chevy Bel Air via a 1998 Harley Davidson for Dues Ex Machina.

What motivated the build was Woolaway’s love affair with American design, made evident by the Chevy-style fins in the seat cowl. The bike also alludes to a mid-century vibe thanks to a custom paint job from Anaheim Rod and Custom, resulting in a spot-on representation of the Golden Era. The bike also features a carbon fiber front fender, Motogadget gauges, a Keihin FCR-39 carburetor, handmade exhaust system, and rides atop a set of Bridgestone Tires. The updated Chromoly frame also reduces the weight of the bike allowing the 1200cc Harley engine to shine in all its American glory. A handsome and powerful machine indeed.
