What inspired you or what is the idea that got you started?

I collect and make parts for the Ingo bike and thought it would be fun to make a bike with both eccentric wheels. After making a few clown bucking bikes I saw a horse bike on youtube and thought That was great but it didn't have eccentric wheels so that's why this project evolved. After seeing a clopping device on, thought it needed that too. Then I added a soundboard for the horse's whinny and snort. A horse is not complete without the William Tell overture, add another soundboard for that too.

What is your project about and how does it work?

It is about making an ultimate horse bike with sound and galloping up and down motion, it works great to see the videos on youtube.

What did you learn by doing this project?

No problem is unsolvable with a little time and patience.

What impact does your project have on others as well as yourself?

I get a lot of laughs when riding it or letting others try it out.
