By popular demand, we introduce a really tall version of the original lamp.
Built from recycled Japanese motorcycle bits from the 70's and 80's, this floor lamp is sturdy, handsome and pretty doggone elegant for being rescued from the salvage yard.
Playing off the original lamp design, this one uses a brake rotor and transmission gear as the base and a spring and shock at the top. In between are two brushed chrome fork tubes that thread together to make this badboy stand tall.
As with all our upcycled moto gear, these lamps have dings, dents, and scratches here and there, but we take great care to clean them up and give them that classic Classified finish, just like our bikes.
The lamps are made to order using available parts. They stand approximately 53 inches high from floor to top of socket. They are fitted with a harp base so you can use whatever shade you like.
All Classified Moto lamps are signed and numbered (except for the first few we ever did). Jay Leno has lamp No. 341, by the way, but who's counting...
PLEASE NOTE as with all our lamps, the shade is not included.
SPECIAL REQUESTS. We'll do our best to accommodate requests for certain styles and makes of parts. For instance, if you like a shock with a metal cover over the spring, or you had a Honda CB when you were in high school, we'll do our best to work those into the design, provided we have the parts on hand in our Japanese parts bin. European and American parts are available by quote.
Please allow four to six weeks to receive your handmade lamp.
Upon placing your order, let us know if you have any direction for us and we'll do our best to match you up with parts that fit the bill. As with our other lamps, we'll post pics online of the parts we choose for your lamp. Soon after you order, you can check http://classifiedlamps.tumblr.com/ where you'll see parts for all the lamps we're working on, individually labeled by owner. If you don't like what you see, let us know. Keep in mind that the photos will show the parts in their pre-Classified state. Ignore the grease and dirt.
