Steering Wheel is Set on the Shamancycle!

Steve and I spent some (lots actually) quality time mucking about with the Shamancycle this weekend. The bench seat from the London double decker bus has supports and is in place. Adjustments can be made on the seating location!. The steering wheel is now mounted to a crank from a donor bicycle, and a support is now in place for the brake pedal! Some minor corrections are needed now that the Shamancycle has been lowered to the ground as the suspension settled. The steering wheel looks great and feels great and is awesome in place. (Jeff)

Seat Set up on Shamancycle

Made some changes tonight! Cut out the front side supports to fit in the driver seat. It’s from a British double decker bus no less! Just trying it out. Forgot to set it the camera to autofocus though. (Jeff)

Soap Box Derby Test & Exam Day

Ron & John showed up early this morning to go over the Steam Punk soap box derby vehicle to see what needed to be done to get it ready to race. We slimmed down some unnecessary items, added some air to the tires and off we went to the sorta-secret location for exam and test runs. Kathy joined us at the site and we all signed in, and our lives away as well. Ron got to go on a run down the course and had a blast. I went for one as well and had a great time, but some idiot managed to tweak the right rear wheel at the end of the last run playing around. Some brake, uh, adjustments, are now needed. Of course that idiot was me. (Jeff)
