My Artprize entry for this year is another “over-the-top” Chevy V-8 powered, three wheeled motorcycle (tryke). Using ideas thought up during the building of last year’s entry, I started with a Chevy 350 cid V-8 donated by my neighbor’s motor home. As before, one of my goals was to build my tryke with as many repurposed parts as possible. Using a cutting torch, grinder, sick welder and a heavily used ebay account I went to work. Taking styling cues from the space race of the 1960’s, Batman and a lot of Corvette parts the tryke has taken on a biomechanical look that would be right at home in the latest Transformers movie. Although not completed yet (still in the mock-up stage) this monster will be fully functional and drivable by the time of the show.
