Roll Over Beethoven

Marlin Baker's avatar Marlin Baker

Roll Over Beethoven is a motorcycle "chopper" made from 41 musical instruments or parts of the instruments. Most of the instruments are "retired" from actual use with the exception of the motorcycle headlight which is a new tambourine. No one rides the motorcycle but it is on display to feature a second life for the instruments. Maybe you recognize your high school band instrument. The name Roll Over Beethoven was chosen as it displays the spirit of classical music with the speed and freedom of a motorcycle. Chuck Berry would be proud.
