Cecil the Seesaw

Hi Everyone;

Cecil pushes the envelope as to what is considered a bike, but quite fun. The feeling when riding Cecil is amazing, like walking on the moon in low gravity

Cecil is:
22 feet nose to tail
Is built form two freestyle bikes by stretching frames to make a 75" wheel base
Folds into thirds, to fit in an 8 foot trailer
Was supposed to be propelled by rocking, but that broke. Cecil works just fine with Flintstonian propulsion.

Indeed. We will take Cecil out this weekend, but we are not sure as to time. It takes about 15 minutes to unfold and fasten into riding position, hence, we won't be using Cecil much. We are thinking of selling him for what it cost to build so someone can take him to burning man. Send a private message with a phone number I can tecxt you when we are heading out.

Caught Cecil and Speaker Guy on the Huntington Beach boardwalk. All I can say is this must be seen in person to appreciate it. Not just cool, but Sofa King Cool.
