Bicycle Guitar

  • Project Description

    I used a Dynasty 200 to Tig this guitar entirely out of bicycle parts. There are a variety of gears and sprockets which make up the body. The neck is from the tube of a BMX bike. The head is off the rear/seat mount from an old ten speed. I even used two different gauge wires from brakes and shift controls as the strings. The string tensioners are from seat clamps. The lever is off a kick stand. The lever has been bolted on and can be removed if desired. Everything else has been TIG welded together. I sand blasted everything and then coated it with several layers of clear coat paint. This piece was awarded the top prize for \"Best in Show\" at the 2013 Newport News Fall Festival of Folklife.
