Man Alive Fat Tandem Art Bikes for Burning Man 2018


#1

I am helping my friends Doug Shire and Karl Gesslein build a 40-foot tall puppet that has two motorized tandem fat bikes as its base. The puppet will be exhibited at the annual Burning Man event in the summer of 2018. We plan to work on this project regularly on Wednesday evenings and we welcome other IG members to join us!
