Salvage Bicycle to Cart Project
The idea is to produce a low tech no weld cart using salvaged bicycles, and other salvaged materials.
Some of the specifications of these designs are:
- Utilize minimum amount of salvaged bicycles and other salvaged materials
- Low tech no weld construction, that can be taught to relatively un skilled workers, in a low tech environment.
- Versatile design to allow for loading of diverse materials
- User friendly ergonomics
- Low cost, somewhere in the $100 to $200.00 range retail. Eventually developing custom configurations, to fit specific uses.
In the future we will be developing vehicles with Power Take Offs, and accessories, that would be for various tasks such as milling, grinding, mixing, blending, sweeping, cutting ……..
All designs developed during this process will be free for anyone to use
Please keep in mind that this is a rough draft of the concepts.
We will expand on these concepts with accurate drawings, specifications, and production methods, as we develop the ideas presented here.
