How do ya get a steam-electric hybrid motorcycle across country? With your help! (and a very strong box!)

The Charles River Museum of Art and Innovation's new exhibit: "Steampunk, Form and Function" is hosting a design competition and my bike, the Whirlygig Emoto, needs help getting there!

She'll need a custom crate and rush shipping in order to make it to Massachusettes by October 22nd, the opening of the exhibit! The money will help pay for the crate and the shipping to and from the Museum. Any additional money over the pledge amount will allow me to buy a plane ticket and be there too!

Here's more info on the Museum: http://www.crmi.org/ and on the steampunk competition: http://www.steampuffin.com/

The Whirlygig Emoto is a fully custom-built electric motorcycle with a functioning steam-boiler on the back! Fabricated in 2007 as an offshoot of the fantastic Steampunk Treehouse http://www.steamtreehouse.com/
