Seen In The Wild

Well we didn't manage to go riding on Memorial Day. I had completely blanked out that our trailer hadn't even arrived yet, much less had we gotten a license for it. So there was no way I could have taken a mostly finished trike to the trails. Wishful thinking.

But that allowed me to relax a bit more and not rush the clear coat and so forth. This weekend will be spent on the finishing touches and then right here you'll see a nice photo spread of the completed trike in all its glory!

Mostly The Jobs We Call Paint (Part Deux)

No, we didn't get hit by a bus. :)

The weather has been nothing but rain and high wind but we were finally able to begin painting. We were going to set up a tent outside but the wind on the best of days is just too much, so we set up an operation area in the well-ventilated basement.

I hope to have the major painting and clear coating dried on Memorial Day for the inaugural run. There will still be some small bits unfinished so the trike won't be officially finished by then but I just have to ride it on the holiday. Expect a sneak peak of the trike in the wild by Tuesday!

Flaming Cyclist

Ah what those wacky Burning Man attendees get up to. A flaming cyclist kinetic sculpture is simultaneously simple and sheer genius.
