Hey All!
Here's my collection of 1/18 Maisto motorcycles. The cabinet is something I made myself over the past few months in the garage. It will hold approx 230 bikes. Right now there are 190 in it!

:cheers
Duc

That is a most impressive bike collection Sean!! I really like how your display has one huge glass door in the centre section without all sorts of framing to block the view.

That looks great Sean! After looking at your awsome display, I wish mine were in closed shelves :cry
The only problem I see is that you don't have enough HDs. :lol

Once again, thanks to all for the kind words!!

StygianMax, I tried to keep as little wood out of the front while still giving it enough support. The doors were really tricky, the joints had to be strong enough to support the weight of the door. Had to get fancy with the jointery!

Al, I'm not much into HD's, although with all the pics I've been seeing out here lately, I might be swayed!!! Damn you DiecatXchange, damn you!!!! :lol

Ric, You are too kind! I'll be running to the mailbox everyday until it arrives!! Thanks in advance, it'll have a good home!!!

Anyone notice the white child lock on the bottom door? Little fingers have already tried to help 'rearrange' my bikes!!! :giggle

:cheers
Sean

I'm a little biased! Is that a bad thing though? :giggle 6 Triumphs are better than no Triumphs!!! I have about 200 of Funlines 'Muscle Machines' in 1/64 and another 30 or so of their 1/18 cars. The two wheeled variants have consumed me lately!!!

Winstoncds, Thanks a bunch!!!

:cheers
Duc

Thanks for the comments!!! I have a website that I post pics of the bikes I get as they come in. If I see something on Ebay I think I might not have, I pull up the webpage and look. I have a trade/wanted list that I reference. Also, not all the pics on the site are in my collection but, I can tell by the photos which bikes I have. My system doesn't work too well for going to stores!!! Doesn't much matter around here, no hobby/diecast stores!

Thanks again!!!
Sean
