Nudes, bodypaint and yoga have come together to create some intriguing "human motorcycles".
The "motorcycles" will tour with the Progressive International Motorcycle Shows in the US and are a culmination of collaboration between body paint artist Trina Merry and Ryan Berman.
The net result was three "human motorcycles" - a Ducati sport bike, a KTM dirt bike and a Harley-Davidson cruiser - which were created over three days.
Technically those used in the construction of these "motorcycles" weren't models, but a combination of dancers, yoga instructors and circus performers who were able to undertake the contortions needed to form the variety of shapes, including wheels, seats, exhaust pipes and handle bars.
Website, AutoEvolution.com, reports that each creation required hours of work with the cruiser listed at 15 hours, the sport bike 18 hours and the dirt bike 13.5 hours with each bike being airbrushed by at least eight people.
Massage therapists were required to keep the participants limbered up and there was a maximum of two minutes a time each bike could be held in position.
Watch the clip below to check out how it was done.
