About

The Mancycle

Remember your first tricycle?  Now imagine your tricycle has grown with you and developed alongside your life experience – and we present to you the Mancycle!  This Burning Man Art Car project is a twelve foot tall motorized tricycle, built from scratch by professional fabricator Tony San Miguel.  It will be equipped with flame jets fifteen feet off of the ground, and be able to shuttle three to four passengers comfortably around the Playa.  The tricycle itself is built and running, what we're looking to the community for support on is to enhance it with an epic lighting display and fuel for the flames.

We plan to run individual circuits with sequencers to each of the wheels, and approximately 300 feet of LEDs around the frame.

Here is a breakdown of our goals for the project from here:

LED & El-Wire Sequencers - 350$

LEDs 300' (Yes, it is going to be BRIGHT) - 550$

El-Wire Super Bright 3rd Gen 150' - 250$

4x 10lb propane tanks (hopefully enough for the week!) - 100$

Trailer for the Mancycle - 350$
