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


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

Me & Al!

Grand Old Day Parade


Someday it will be inside...

Passing new Vikings stadium construction

Minnesota State Fair Parade!

May the Fourth be with you! #DarthViking
