    Bicycle sketchpad......

    I've been busy today cleaning out my filing cabinet and to my delight I found the originals of some bicycle sketches that I did to amuse myself during boring meetings back in my corporate days of employment. I didn't last that long at being a 'Jane-coat-and-tie', - I wonder why?





    I've recently posted this one, but you may not have seen it.

    They're great.

    If you had a heap of them or were inclined to do more I'm sure you could publish a fun book

    Where are numbers 1-8 and 10? Those are great fun, thanks! I wish I could find some of those "skidwell" tires.

    I think that No. 9 would be an awesome winter cycle.

    Great Drawings! Those must have been some Looong meetings, to get that much detail into a drawing.

    Thanks everyone Actually it's really surprising how many artworks and sketches get produced in boring meetings. Try Googling 'boring meeting' or 'boring meeting art', you'll find there's some amazing drawings and doodles out there.

    I love Steampunk btw. I was heavily into miniature wargaming at one time back when my kids were teenagers and were keen wargamers. It was a really great way to have quality time even if my armies did used to get heavily defeated on a regular basis Anyway to get back to the subject I made a lot of artwork for paper and cardboard kits of steam-powered war walkers, ironclad gunboats, steam-powered flying saucers, aerial steam gunboats, armoured cars etc etc. Just the thing for Colonial Wargaming, Victorian Sci-Fi and of course Steampunk rules

    I have at times wondered how possible it would be to build full sized replicas of my bicycle sketches. I'm not going to claim that any of them might actually work, but it certainly would be fun to have a go. And yes I do agree that 'No: 9' could make a very good Winter commuting bicycle with a little careful development work

    These are all the sketches that I've found so far, but I have thought about doing some more. Perhaps I could start sitting in on local council meetings as a way to reproduce the boredom factor as a way to start the creative juices flowing again.

    [QUOTE]

    I agree that it would be a great winter commuter, but I don't think we should really refer to no. 9 as a bicycle. A front wheel, 2 drive wheels, and several suspension pulleys (not really sure of the terms for tank track parts, but that's the best I can think of), and the track itself, not really "bi" anymore. And "motor" or "engine" or "auto" should be in there too, but still great fun ideas.

    I guess when I refer to bicycles, unicycles, tricycles, and quadcycles (etceteracycles), I like to think of strictly human powered vehicycles. Maybe i'm a purist.

    Give "No. 11" a good, lightweight tail behind the rear prop (and linkage to the handlebars) and you could have the makings of an excellent autogyro...Make the frame and as many parts as possible out of carbon fibre to save weight...I'd buy something like that, I'd just need to get a good helmet.
