SR Piston by Needle felting
A piston made of felt
The piston is the heart of a bike. It creates power by strenuously moving a hollow cylinder in the engine up and down using gasoline combustion. We have reproduced the piston of the popular SR400 bike, that has been on sale for 40 years, in felt.
Enjoy the difference between the metal parts and making them with soft felt.
