About this project

Custom Engraving & Sculpting

Hi, first of all THANK YOU! for viewing our Kickstarter project.

Scorpion Custom Engraving specialize in engraving and sculpting motorcycle parts, engine casings and covers. We also make bespoke parts (bar ends, foot pegs, back rests, headlight brackets, awards and plaques) please go to our website or Facebook page to view the many creations.

The feedback we have received so far is phenomenal :) We are hoping this project is successful and so will ensure we keep progressing.

These are examples of "old school engraving"

We are growing rapidly now as the bike season kicked off a few weeks ago. We have worked really hard day and night (and beyond) to get the Scorpion name out there and showing off the work wherever possible. Attending bike shows and events is a vital part of our marketing.

This is the first bike with sculpting work to be entered into a custom show. Its a Suzuki Bandit themed Predator vs Alien.

The project aim

With your help we will be able to purchase vital tools to streamline the process and enable us to keep up with the demand.

Roy has tried many different tools and techniques to get the engraving/sculpting results he wants, he has adapted tools he already had as we couldn't afford to invest in a pneumatic jewellers engraver. He currently uses a modified pneumatic dental chisel because that was the cheapest option and as you can see he gets great results. However he has no control over the speed and is restricted to how fine he can engrave. A pneumatic jewellers engraver would mean we could offer so much more to our customers.

The designs are transferred using a similar technique to tattooists, this is the most time consuming part of the process as he has to trace the design by hand onto transfer paper and them apply to the area he is to engrave. A Thermal transfer printer/copier would save Roy so much time as I would be able to do that part of the job so he could carry on engraving and creating his wonderful work.

Risks and challenges

We each have the other to rely on and are both very adaptable, with 30+ years experience of working for others we have a vast array of skills between us. We do not anticipate issues and are confident that fulfillment will run smoothly. If unexpected issues or challenges arise, updates on our Kickstarter page will be posted promptly to keep our backers up to date at all times. We thank you for your support in helping us bring our dream to life!
