LET'S HAVE MORE FUN IN THE SUN

YOURS, WHILE YOU HAVE IT.

After selecting our cruiser, your username will popup into the rear LED license plate display. Allowing others to see your Snapchat account and increase your social network.

 
 

DRIVE-SHAFT PEDAL ASSIST

To protect from the elements and allow for a more leisurely experience, we implemented a E-assist drive-shaft motor. This feature allows for simpler maintenance, and a more enjoyable ride.

 
 
We gathered insights and opportunities from our observations throughout the Santa Monica area.

FINAL MODEL

We decided to be resourceful and build the model the most cost effective way. Using minimal amount of cash and relying more on our skills of crafting, designing and refining. We worked our way from the biggest to the smallest details.

We used laser cut templates of our design, to fabricate the pieces of wood into form.
