Paint Bike

PAINT BIKE from The Deadly Nightshades on Vimeo.

As far as DIY art bikes go, this is pretty rad. The Deadly Nightshades, an all girl bike gang from Toronto, built this simple mechanism that uses empty mustard containers and old brake systems without the pads for squeezing paint onto the wheels. The video shows them “painting” a canvas on the ground, but repeated rides around the city could generate some pretty cool results too, probably illegally, however.

    Possibly Illegally… no, doesn’t sound like us at all! ;)

    Thank you for spreading the word Scott! :)
