lumbering contraption

The Lumbering Contraption
Team Ratchet & Rumble's human-powered railwheel, The Lumbering Contraption. Created at Saint Louise for the first annual Handcar Regatta; September 28, 2008 Santa Rosa, California. After the race we received the Isambard Kingdom Brunel award for— Most Grandiose Feat of Engineering. Now we are sharpening our knives to cannibalize this big piece of steel!
