Trustin is going to RACE!

Trustin has finished his car!

It took almost 2 years, but Trustin is in the finishing stages of this unique pedalcar.
Side lever stearing, dual rear disc, webbing seat, and a proud builder/racer on the pedals.

The Banner Will Be Waving!

New Banner for the Faire

Sometimes we like to do things the old way, and this banner shows it.  The fonts were supplied to us by Kathie Sever, they were carved wood letter type from the late 1800s, she printed them on paper for us a couple months ago. We put the print on the opaque projector and my daughter traced the letters onto the canvas. We painted all the color with acrylic paint, and then Joshua sewed the border and the backing. This is just one example of the path that we choose to take.

New car on the scene...

Bruce just rolled up with his new car, working title is the Clean Machine.
This car has a lot of clever solutions for store bought parts, like the forks-become spindles,
and the excercise bench-adjustable seat with head rest. Also a great use for an aluminum
box tube as main frame member.
We look forward to seeing him at the races and at the faire.
