Repurposed Motorcycle Part Lamps

This Motorcycle Headlight Lamp is an Inventive Upcycled Project

— July 1, 2013 — Autos
Diogo Vinagre came up with an inventive way to upcycle an old object, turning it into a motorcycle headlight lamp. The red retro headlight has its fair share of dings and scratches, showing that it has clearly had a full life as part of a motorcycle. Although it is worn, it gives the lamp a charming vintage quality and the motorcycle part can still shine brightly to serve its new purpose as a desk lamp.

This inspiring upcycled headlight has just a few additions that turn it into something completely new. Diogo outfitted this new unit with a stand, switch and a mechanism to help it pivot. For motorcycle headlights that are still functional, this is a great project to assure functioning parts don't go to waste.

1. Upcycling - The trend of repurposing old objects into new and innovative products, like Diogo Vinagre's motorcycle headlight lamp.

3. Functional Design - The trend of combining functionality and innovation in product design, such as adding a stand, switch, and mechanism to repurposed motorcycle headlights.

2. Vintage Restoration - The vintage restoration industry can leverage the trend of vintage charm by repurposing and incorporating worn motorcycle parts into their products.
3. Sustainable Design - The sustainable design industry can capitalize on the trend of upcycling by creating functional and aesthetically pleasing products out of discarded materials, such as repurposed motorcycle headlights.
