Dmitriy eyeglasses, of Florida, recycles parts from old wrist watches, pocket watches and eyeglasses to produce miniature motorcycles, quads, bicycles and tricycles. Wristbands become tires, fenders seats and even frames while items like crystals become windshields and headlight lenses. Mr. Khristenko organizes components from several similar timepieces into pairs before beginning construction. His techniques for fabrication include several types of glue to bond the components together. Finished in 2011, this model motorcycle is 6”-long, 3”-wide, and 3.5”-high.
