Mutant Vehicle Repair
THE CLIENT: Playa Bike Repair
THE PROBLEM: One-of-a-kind human-powered mutant vehicle needs repair and modification
THE SOLUTION: I was contacted by this client because they had taken this vehicle to several fabrication shops and nobody wanted to touch it. People often come to me because they don't know who to whom to turn. The vehicle was elegantly made but lacked a certain ergonomic element that only my extensive human-power experience could provide. I fabricated a steering system, a shade structure, and added a differential to the axle while improving the driveline. The vehicle was also given a once-over for safety, eliminating places where fingers could get pinched or clothing snagged. The client also asked for a giant, 10-ft shadow sculpture of a bicycle which I provided.
THE RESULT: Success
