A real black widow! It's cool in a creepy sort of way.

Here is that Honda C110 50 Piston, I'll use it one day. The connection is I had one of these bikes as a kid.

Yours looks like a real piston, they made shift knobs that look like a piston but were pretty plain looking, that is real isn't it? What did it come from?

No idea what bike it came out of.
I bought it 1986 in Germany just up the road from my workplace.

Try explaining to a German you want any kind of small, no good piston to make a gearshift knob.

shift knob

On My second T bucket I cast a candy apple 2 1/2 resin ball , looked good until I parked it with the top off on a hot day, shifted in 1 st gear, the ball acted like a magnifying glass and made what looked like a cigarette burn on the new upholstery.

YIKES! Luck you didn't install it in a fiero... might've burned the whole car down

I like these ideas though, especially the beer tap one. Thinking about using an older round style like this:

Looks like it belongs in a Roth Kustom or something. Very cool

I'm still a beginner, but I've taken to carving shifter knobs. This is just one of many - I may post more later.

Brian,

That's no beginner, that's a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Great work!
