I've been working on this for a while now, but I haven't been posting it because I've also been busy with school.
Figure I might share now.
To begin with, I sketched out the rough plan of what I wanted from my boss bike.
With that done, I had an approximate idea of what I wanted out of the bike. Excessive amounts of exhaust pipes, and loads of dakka up front.
First thing to do was to start making the general frame of the bike from the rear forward.
The gas tank is made from some spare resin I had lying around while I was making molds - I just sculpted a negative relief into some clay and used that to make a mold for the shape of the gas tank, which I then sanded down. You could probably do the same thing just by gluing a couple sheets of styrene together and carving.
After this, front forks were made and added:
I obviously had to build the bike downward and fill in an engine, and I did not like the intake I had made. After a bit of head-scratching, I came across Trukk Engine parts in my bitz bins that I put to use...
After this, I went ahead and worked on getting a proper drive chain in place for the rear wheel.
Next was to fill in a little bit more around the engine and add foot platforms for the boss's feet to rest on.
Which brings us nearly up to speed. I spent the past day or two just making absolutely ridiculous exhaust pipes for the thing, which I have attached firmly to the side of the vehicle now.
Probably going to do the front wheel guard next, and I need to put a sleeping roll behind the backrest..
And then, of course, there's the guns...
Anyway, that's all I've got so far. It's coming along.
Dude, you amaze me.
Personally, I think that the symbols on the saddlebag should be switched to the closed fist, meaning 'boss'. The bike itself looks great so far. Can't wait to see the boss himself!

I like the idea but I reckon it'd be more orkky if he had a big drag racer styled rear wheel.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
