Full Sized Speeder Bike Build (70th Explorers Pit Crew)

Post by TheSnapWexley » Wed Jul 05, 2017 1:25 pm

So I have been in contact with the Derby City Pit Crew who has built not one but two amazing full scale Speeder Bikes for display at conventions. With the explosion of Bikers in the area and even over in KC I thought it would be really cool if we had one as well. I want to personally take up lead on a project to build one if everyone agrees. Right now it will be in the planning and likely donation collection stage until I purchase a house next year. Once I have a house we will have a place to build and store the thing. After that hopefully we will have enough money donated to start building one. I know the guys in Louisville, KY who build them fund many of their projects this way. So if people are down to help and this is something we can agree on doing lets start working on a patch and a shirt we can maybe sell to generate funds.

This is going to take a lot of dedication and some serious talent from members in the STL area as well as the KC area. I am in a chat with the Derby City guys to get the plans for the build which should include plans for the foam and wood bases needed to build the main hull of the speeder.

Who is in with me? I tagged a few of the local bikers because I know they will want in for sure but we will need the help of the KC guys and gals. Talent will be needed in many areas as such as:

3D Print
Fund Raising
Merch Design

Let me know if you are in! This could be amazing!
