Ever since I was a kid, I’ve wanted a Green Machine. They were super cool, and somewhat elusive. I only ever knew one kid who had it. A while back, I added it to my build list and I FINALLY got around to it. As if it wouldn’t be difficult enough, I decided to also give myself some restrictions… use as much reclaimed material as possible.
I started at the thrift store looking for things that would give me steel square tubing and round tubes and ended up with three main elements.. a bed frame, some crutches and an exercise bike. I ended up having to supply some other raw materials as well, but the majority of the project was made from those found objects (making it WAY more complicated than it needed to be.)
