VikeBike

It's a bike, it's a ship, it's a Minnesota BIKING SHIP!

If you see it, post it & tag it!   #VikeBike


VikeBike on Sabo Bridge


VikeBike at night


The beginning... a free craigslist canoe (a tree had fallen on it and it was bent in half)


The most expensive portion... almost a shame to defile this beautiful trike.


Cutting 7 feet out of the middle of the canoe


Sizing up the pieces


Starting the bottom cut-out


Re-joining the ends into the mini-canoe


Assembling bow and stern ornaments (aluminum sheet, electrical conduit, and bike gears)


Final assembly of working ship


Adding the shields (pot lids from Goodwill)


#VikeBike plates!


250-watt sound system. :-)


Special access for special visitors. :-D


Skol!




Addition of color-changing LED strips inboard and EL wire outline


Me & Al!


Grand Old Day Parade


Refueling


Someday it will be inside...


Passing new Vikings stadium construction


Minnesota State Fair Parade!


May the Fourth be with you! #DarthViking
