  • ○ 5000 kilometers

    Personal project. I've always been interested in technical systems. One technical system allows for transporting yourself with speeds higher than reachable on a bicycle while still being able to enjoy your surroundings without being in a cage that defines your space. I'm talking about a motorized vehicle on two wheels; specifically a two stroke air cooled 50 cc moped. I've redesigned the vehicle twice. Not only I worked on the aesthetics of the bike, but also the engine. We've been travelling a total of more than 5000 km together, the bike predominantly teaching me the value of having patience and persistence. No matter where the vehicle decides to stop (it has it's own life you know) it will always turn out right one way or the other. Lately I haven't used my friend much though. The environmental issue is rising on my personal agenda.
