    Lookee what I made!!! Pics and vid inside!

    Some of you may be familiar my functioanl bike art I have made like the tables, chairs and other odd stuff. But I have began to explore my creative art side and building different things! Here's my new piece, called the "3D reCYCLIST". Made from recycled bike parts, an old trainer, some store fixtures and an old washing machine motor! Check out the video to see it in action.



    The vid is here-

    http://www.fooriders.com/webmain/ind...=226434#226434

    you will have to click the Download button



    You will need that to view the video.


    Let me know what you think!

    may take a little while to download!

    People you got to understand...this thing moves! I thought it was cool in the picture and then I saw it in action on the vid

    I'm surprised Beau doesn't have people worshipping it in front of his house

    Well, I'll try to tell ya, but it will be tough.

    The hip and knee joints are bicycle hubs, and forks are used as the legs. The hub (hip) is welded to a piece of square steel, with one hub for each leg. The fork that is used for the femer is welded to the axle of a hub by the hip. On the opposite side of that hub, I welded a small steel dowel (actually a head stud from a VW Rabbit cyclinder head) that is about an inch long. I put a bearing on that stud.
    Then, I took a steel shaft taken from an old lamp, and welded a bolt on the end so it would fit the bearing by the hip. The lamp shaft travels vertical through guides (washers from bicycles) to provide a veritcal movement when the left leg pedals. On the vertical shaft I welded a old allen wrench. Now there is also a horizontal shaft to the arm, to make it move. On the end on the shaft, I weld a bolt, and installed an old MRP roller. The hor. shaft has guides and connects to the arm, which has a bearing pivot on the end. There is a spring connected to the hor. shaft. So now, when the vertical shaft pulls down, the allen wrench moves down, pushes the roller out and makes the arm move!

    OK, that's the best I can do! All the parts of this piece are recycled. Here's a quick sketch to kind of help.

    Dude!!! You are absolutely talented and gifted!!!

    That is the best representation of recycling I have ever seen!!! This would take several awards at any art, recycling, bike, or any kind of show there was! You should have that bronzed!!!
    Great work!!!

    That's a Masterpiece

    Man, that is one of the most impressive works of art I've seen! And I've been to many museums (all the major ones in NY, London, and Paris, to name a few). You should consider contacting a museum to display your work, ya know, to share w/ the rest of the population, bikers & non-bikers alike. This would fit in the Musuem of Transportation, MoMA, and even the Guggenheim! Or just leave it in your front yard for a really cool attention piece. Either way, great job .
    Better than he was before. Better. . . Stronger. . . Faster. (but not smarter)

    I agree

    road bikers dont wave-change the bars to a flat bar. Then it would be perfect. (I will post some of my bike art soon)
