This cleverly constructed lamp is made from the left-side crankcase of a 1954 Mondial Sport 160, the right camshaft from a 1971 Alfa Romeo Giulia and the base is the helical gear from a 1990 Suzuki Samurai. All of the electrical components were handmade by Claudio Maffi, a man some of you may know for his custom motorcycles work through his garage V Motorcycles.
