A 48-cylinder Kawasaki and a Honda Goldwing model made of wire are among 300 objects on display at a V&A Craft Council exhibition called The Power of Making.

The 4200cc Kawasaki, made by Simon Whitelock of Potters Bar in 2005, uses engines from KH250s.

The handmade wire Goldwing model is described as ‘witty translation’ of a ‘virtual object into physical form’.

The exhibition, which runs until January 2, is ‘celebrating the role of making in our lives’.
