Bike Art Vehicle

I have a vehicular idea, fueled by grapes from the Loire valley (God bless them). That is, the idea is fueled by said grape extract… not the vehicle.

How about a modular art bike. By this I mean one easily configurable as a single, double, or quadruple. The single is self explanatory, the double could carry supplies/ice in between, and the quad coule be… whatever! We could also possibly add a motor assist, especially to the quad. Perhaps in the form of a powered “wheelie bar” using my salvaged motor from the purple baron?

    We definitely need a vehicle like this for ice duty and the sunset serenade.

    I like it! If we can make it work, we’d be the talk of the playa. p.s. — I’ll figure out how to make it so your comments don’t have to be moderated. Sorry about that!

    Sounds great, I envision something as simple as possible. Perhaps two pieces of metal uni-strut/speed steel spanned between the bikes attatched with small muffler clamps, one at the front fork support and one at the seat post. We should also find a use for the EvolveRevolve motor.

    How can we make this work on the playa?

    BIKE
    Though I would think for steering purposes, it would make more sense to put the single wheel up front, and the dual in the back, a-la a regular trike.

    OK, I like the Bamboo bicycle trailer from the above link. Those people seem to have done their homework.

    You can have one for a mere $750, McMaster-Carr carries them.
