The project culminated in a December showcasing in Birmingham at Aedas, Colmore Plaza where students submitted their masterpieces for judging. Among the exhibited designs were a set of fruit bowls made from the T100 wheels, a jacket and helmet stand fashioned from its mirrors, and the winning design from student Nick Orme who created a corkscrew using parts of the Bonneville’s handlebar mechanism.
