The Red Chair


To rent: $200/day

To buy: $6000


A fully upholstered outer shell, full suspension and a 6.5 HP internal combustion engine give the Red Chair comfort, style, plenty of pick up, speed, and a nearly fifty mile range. The engine is Lifan, the same company that makes some of the BMW engines. Brake and gas pedals, turn signals, head lights and Cadillac tail lights will make you feel right at home the first time you sit down for a spin around town or a movie in your living room.                MORE INFO

The Vicious Cycle

The world's only Two Person Side by Side Pedal Powered Dy-Cycle. It's possible.


Dy-cycle is the new word. Every time you ride this you are making history and setting the world record for something. Vicious is capable of spinning thanks to independent power trains and fixed gearing. Each person pedals independently. If one pedals forward and the other backwards, then you spin. To steer you have to communicate and cooperate. Kids love this machine. With help, even seven year olds can have fun. There is one battery for lights and power is fed to the lighted wheels by a home made slip ring. So the mechanics of this will inspire young minds, and old. More info.


$8500 to buy. $200 per day to rent.


The Chairway to Heaven


Originally built in 2003 and remodeled in 2006, today the Chairway is again stripped to the bare frame for a new paint job and a few upgrades.

The scissors are home made and raise the sofa about twelve feet in the air. You can drive around with the sofa all the way up but i would never do that sober. The options on this couch are numerous and include a fire cannon, brass animated flowers, two steam whistles, and a full canopy.


When the remodel is completed it will rent for $300 per day.

Sale price could be negotiated.

The Motorized Platform


     Maybe you want to make a small parade float or Burning Man vehicle for two or three or so, and you don't want to spend a year developing the motorized portion of your creation.

     We can build a motorized Platform for you and guarantee it's dependability. After all these years, I am still learning what doesn't work when it seems like it should. For instance the wheels need to be golf cart size. Remote control is not good for a vehicle you ride on and so forth.

    If you are going to Burning Man be sure to order early as these are not in stock and the deadline for applying for a permit is in June and the permit has to be in your name, not mine.
