Welcome to Bikes By Bruce

I have been model building for decades with a focus on 1/9th Protar and 1/6th Tamiya motorcycles. The chief modification that I have found that really separates a great build from a good build are the spoke wheels. The use of piano wire to replace the plastic spokes of most stock motorcycle models can really help to fool the camera. Now. About that one you have been meaning to build? Feel free to contact me with any questions or inquiries at Bruce [at]
