Materials: SRAM parts, training wheels, flashlights, leather, steel, aluminum
Statement: I knew what my box of parts was going to become. The main "frame" pieces of my motorcycle jumped out at me immediately. The top fork piece as a single-sided swingarm was too perfect to resist. As I worked, I stopped seeing them as full-scale bike parts. My goal was to solve each design problem with the provided bike parts whenever possible. And with zero welding skill, I needed to use strategic assembly points to hold it all together firmly. Some details needed a custom solution, though. A small leather seat gives a proper perch. And a couple of cannibalized flashlights provide LED headlights powered by a hidden battery pack.
