"Live fast, die young": Time Lapse Custom Vintage Racing Motorcycle by Sebastian Errazuriz is a fully restored vintage Norton racer, customized in steel and aluminum, and at the same time, "a fetish object stripped down to its sculptural framework ... a masculine symbol of power and freedom ... on the boundary of fragility and fatality."

Unforgettably entombed in a glass-topped case inset in the gas tank, a colourful taxidermied bird, "making death a core element."
Built by NYC Norton, with part of the profits going to at-risk-youth-oriented non-profit, Worth Motorcycle Company.
On display via Salon 94 at the upcoming Art Basel, Miami Beach, December 1 to 8, 2013.
