So here are a couple videos from last weekend’s (mis)adventures. One day after work, I decided to raid the scrap pile, and I came up with a car hood and a child’s bike. I then decided to stretch my terrible welding skills and make them one piece. A friend and I then decided to take it out for a few rides, which was a ton of fun until I slammed it into a log and broke the fork on the bike.
Yes, we were both aware it was a very stupid idea. We had helmets on the entire time and actually kept the wheeler moving relatively slow.
I definitely want to build another one, although the next one will probably have a seat bolted to the hood-a couple of my farmer welds ended up breaking out of the sheet metal.
