Wahoo! Just saw this posting.

Now that looks like a Ton O' Fun! If you are looking for some Black PVC material Brig....let me know. I have about 6 to 8 yards (60") of it just sitting around the back of my reenactment closet. Besides...my days of wearing Black PVC are over. Might was well put it to some good use.

Woo, thanks Cheeky! I'll let you know once I'm a little further into the design mechanics. :blink:

Gonna try to make this my Halloween costume this year. I loves me some HQ, and this incarnation looked a bit steamy. ;)

I seem to remember an espionage venture in Milwaukee, of which a very alluring dark-haired vixen wore an extremely provocative black outfit!!

Yes my dear you can still turn a head!

So here's to you my dear!

I've got no pictures of myself in steam gear but I did just come across a pic of the penny-fake-thing I built a couple of years ago. I think it qualifies for the genre. It's a joy to ride.

Not exactly the vision I had, but a distinct possibility. I keep forgetting I don't "bounce" like I used to. lol.

Actually it's a fairly comfortable ride. When you do fall (and you will) you're thrown forward off of the bike and land right on your feet. That's the reason the handlebars are mounted where they are. There's nothing to hang you up on your way down.

I have to get back to working on my trike....

I started it last year for Burning Man, but had some slight problems that I will fix this year .... well that, and I want to add a small motor to it....

This is a picture of it before I added a seat and painted it Hunter Green.

Trike-01.jpg

The peddling is weird, and that is also part of the problem, The peddles tend to come undone (Bicycles tighten when you peddle them, with everything flipped backwards, it tends to loosen....) I could fix that... or I'm just going to add some more sprockets and lots of bicycle chains, (and a lawn mower engine) and make it rear-wheel driven. fix the seat, and maybe add brakes.....

I'm inclined to buy you a pink plastic basket with daisies on it for the front, Patrick....you know...to carry your weapons in.

Well..... the original idea was that a trike is more stable than a bicycle....specially if ye've been drinkin' ...

Hey...IT IS for Burning Man....

Gee Patrick,

Just like a guy...you wave something mechanically cool in front of them and they forget what they were doing.

Was it something to do with PVC material? If it's about my age...never mind.

Now there's a thought! I'll pitch in and purchase those shiney streamers for the handles and a horn to boot!

Here's some pictures of the 'steampunk dancers' at the Escondido Ren-faire this year.

BTW- I told several people about this 'steampunk' stuff and they just looked at me like I was from another planet..... :lol:
