    You need to make it up in sections (although that's probably stating the obvious.) I use wire frames.
    The best thing is to simplify the structure of the deign and then once all the main body and wheels are baked, add embellisments for the exausts etc. and rebake.

        I build up my motorbikes in section and always add raw clay to baked clay otherwise I would get into a right mess with squished clay here and there!

        I do sometimes add a spot of Fimo liquid gel with the tiny and awkward places and then again I also bake pieces seperate and then super glue them together. Whatever way I do they motorbike is usually in and out of the oven up to 10 times if not more! Here is one example I did a couple of years back.

            I haven't done a motorbike before, but if you bake small pieces separately, place them on a bed of corn flour or or use blue tack to hold them while baking. saves flat bottoms.
            just a little tip I thought to pass on LOL.
            Pauline your bike is truly amazing. xxx

              Rae, I did too - I enlarge the text so I don't have to squint, and it makes the thread title shorter on the main CF page... I finally broke down and had to look and see how to make a motor bike pretty!
