Happy Halloween! This project takes home the unofficial Product Design & Development costume contest no-prize. Designer Ian Chambers and his team of builders, filmmakers, and costumers made Star Wars speeder bikes and drove them around the streets of New York City. They’re made of joy.
They’re also made on little electric bikes, Super 73s from Lithium Cycles. The bodies were sculpted with Bondo filler. In true Star Wars filmmaking fashion the team put together the science fictional pipes and air filters with repurposed parts. Here’s the behind-the-scenes video of how they built the bikes, and the video of the ride can be found in the link above.
