Pedal Power

Lego Bikes

Not that you’d know it from recent posts, but we are supposed to be a car blog. However, we do have a soft-spot for anything pedal powered – they were our first wheels after all. These two unusual builds come from Konajra on Flickr, and Stephan Niehoff of Flickr and MOCpages.

Konajra’s drift trike looks like a riot of fun. The same can’t be said for Stephan’s penny farthing mountain bike, which looks like one of the most dangerous contraptions ever invented. Join the ride via the links above.

Tuk, tuk, tuk, tuk…

Tuk tuk

The cheap and simple to maintain “tuk, tuk” is spreading everywhere today. Especially in Asia, Africa and South America they are thronging the roads of cities transporting both goods and people. Recently, a team of Elves have been using a tuk tuk to haul their Lego finds back to TLCB towers. Fortunately this noisily annoying vehicle was smushed into the carpet by another group, equipped with Sariel’s Liebherr Loader.

Tuk tuks have now made it into space, thanks to Pico van Grootveld’s entry into this year’s Classic Space Pocket Money Contest. His Tequilatron theme might explain why 1980s spacemen were always happy and smiling. Pico has also just published photos of his awesome ORCA MK II gunship. Click this link to his Flickr Photostream to see more of both builds, including the alternative models made from the Tuk tuk’s parts.

Drift Trike

Lego Drift Trike

We have a well documented nervousness about child’s tricycles here at TLCB, but this one is so cool even we’d have a go. Flickr’s Rhys’ Pieces has used just a handful of Lego elements to create this most excellent drift trike. See how he’s done it at the link above.

Lego Tricycle

Tricycles are easily the creepiest form of transport known to mankind. But that hasn’t stopped Eurobricks’ Milan from building one (rather spectacularly) from Lego. Now to find an empty hotel to ride it in…

Lego Tricycle

REᗡЯUM

OK, it’s not a Big Wheel, but this twice life-size tricycle by certified LEGO Professional Sean Kenney sure has a ‘Shining’ air to it.

Or it might just be that Stanley Kubrick’s cinematic masterpiece is so powerful that any red trike immediately conjures up images of elevators full of with blood, partying ghosts and madmen with axes. See more of this totally harmless tricycle (probably) at Sean’s MOCpage via the link above.
