DIY projects | Maker of the week: Paul Cox
We always say that if you want to improve your DIY projects, you need two things: passion and the will to learn, especially with the best. To make and create you must always get out of your comfort zone (run away from it!) and accept every challenge that comes. And even if they don’t seem to come, well, chase them.
And because we want you to get inspired for your DIY projects, today we bring you the amazing work of Paul Cox, the bad ass of DIY projects, a true artist of custom choppers, chopper parts, leather work, hand crafted knives and more, much more.
They say that Paul Cox makes bad ass things more bad ass and we couldn’t agree more. This passionate artist discovered at a very young age his passion for the two wheels and since then he didn’t stop, experimenting and improving his DIY projects everyday. Actually, his early contraptions were two, three and four wheeled and improved with time from bicycles and soapboxes to mini-bikes, go-carts, dirt bikes, and of course, motorcycles.
On his journey from childhood experiments to today, Paul worked on several shops such as Sixth Street Specials and Psycho Cycles and later, Gasoline Alley in Brooklyn formed by Paul, Indian Larry and several other talented friends. Actually, Paul’s work can’t be named without naming Indian Larry as he was the long time friend and mentor for Paul, working as an inspiration for him.
Learning everything the world has to offer was the center of all Paul’s and Larry’s journey and that’s what Making is all about. A true Maker is curious by nature and has the will to learn always more, improving his DIY projects till perfection– and this is the core for Paul work where functionality, balance and detail are always a priority.
