This Saturday, Oct. 7, Tim Sway will showcase his “UpTriCycle” at the Greater Hartford Mini Maker Faire. Sway calls the UpTricycle an “off grid, electric, solar charging mobile maker space and carrier for upcycling makers.” He uses minimal tools and footprints in his creation for unlimited potential.
On his YouTube page, Sway made a comparison video between a gas-powered trike and an electric trike. He purchased a gas-powered trike first, and then converted that same trike to electric with our E-Bike Conversion Kit. After testing out both designs and comparing the two, Sway decided that the electric tricycle was superior to the gas-powered one. He noted how easy the E-Bike Kit is to install, and how much fun and powerful it is.
Sway works exclusively with reclaimed and upcycled materials which makes the UpTriCycle a fun play-on-words about his craft. Some of his other creations consist of musical instruments, furniture, art and any discarded materials he can get his hands on. The retired musician embraces a “trash to treasure” mentality and inspires everyone to think freely, creatively and eco-consciously in their work and lives.
