Richard had an ambitous plan to use electroluminescent (EL) wire to turn the greenspeed tandem trike and the organ trailer into a light-up train for tonight's Santa Claus Parade.
Richard, Mark, Alex, Pete and others got together at re-Cycles last weekend to start the build. I was pretty busy and only stopped by to take a few photos of them building the frame. My photos of that day are below, Richard's are here: http://tricolour.net/photos/2010/11/13/hpv.html.
340 feet of EL wire and a few days later, they finished it and it looks awesome! See the photos and videos on Richard's photo page:
Come out tonight and join us (or at least watch us in the parade)! We'll be float number 53.

Mark says: Need framework from which to hang wheels etc. Use conduit attached to seat racks for this, and add light strings for outline of body.
Forgot to add: rear wheels would be 27" fronts from re-Cycles, and second small wheels would be 20".
