Motorcycle and Rider Scroll Saw Pattern.

Download the Pattern Below

The number of on-road registered motorcycles in the US has doubled in the last 20 years. The current number is over 8 million. About 8 percent of households have a motorcycle. California has the most with 800,000 followed by Florida with 550,000. The average age of a motorcycle rider is 48. 

Beginner riders typically pay $5,000 to $10,000 for a new motorcycle. Experienced riders pay $10,000 to $35,000. 

This motorcycle model was cut from 1/4" thick Baltic birch plywood. The bike is 7" long. I kept this model very basic. There is not much realism but I think it still would look nice on a rider desk. 

The rider is glued to the back of the motorcycle to act as a stand so it stays upright.

Does cutting nice circles on the scroll saw give you trouble?

Click to Enlarge

If you are new to the scroll saw you may have a tough time cutting accurate circles. People pick out imperfections in circles easily so you want them to be as well-cut as possible. The good news is that you can cut them sloppy and still have a nice circle when finished.

A: Cut just outside the circle.
B: Before you remove the pattern, sand down to the line.
C: Perfect circle every time.

You will find it much easier to sand to the line than to cut to the line. A disk sander works best but even hand sanding will get the job done slowly.

The DeWalt DW788 is currently selling for $391 on Amazon.
This is the lowest price in many months. If you are looking to upgrade from an entry-level saw this is a good choice for a mid-level saw.
