Piracy Bike Arlen Ness 1st Annual Bike Show
A Custom Garage was recruited to put this bike on water at the first annual Arlen Ness Bike Show in Fremont, CA. Our job entailed fabricating the pirate ship rails for the display, hand carving and gold leafing the display rails, fabricating custom acrylic lighting enclosures that would be energized underwater for 3 solid days and would allow for color gel lenses to be used to change the color of the smoke aura, an integrated smoke machine to make a smoke aura, full surround sound speakers mounted underneath the rails on the water side to create a ripple in the water while playing thePirates of the Caribbean soundtrack, ensure that the tank would hold the 350 gallons of water without leaking onto the convention center floor where all the electrical outlets are located(the main power junction box was under a corner of our display since we were pulling power to the audio amps, lights, smoke, smart controller, etc we had to be almost on top of the plugs so there weren't wires littering the floor), and we would have to build it around the bike because there was no feasible way to drive the bike over the rail due to its length and ground clearance. Not too hard you say, well lets assume you are booked out with your garage cabinet business for the next 6 months, and let's assume you won't be anywhere that you can work on prefabrication until 2 days before the show. Then lets kick it up for fun and factor in that you will be driving all the pre finished materials(wood) up to Fremont from Los Angeles and it will start raining about 2 hours into the trip. Then when you get there, you have 4 hours to assemble the display before event goers arrive, including filling up 5 gallon water bottles with water in the restroom and transporting them to the display(35 trips 2 bottles at a time).....how'd we do you ask? bike took best paint in show, best bike in class, 2nd place overall, display got best continuity, and they gave us a bigger plaque for "Grand Display" because; as the judges put it, "You guys told us you were taking it to the limit for the inaugural show, but we had no idea that your "limit" was so far beyond what we had imagined." You see, most displays use urethanes to simulate water for the displays, but with the Pirate bike we decided to set the bar a little higher. The still water acted like a mirror to see the underside of the bike, but every 15 minutes the "show" started with smoke and music and lights; proper lighting effectively changes the entire look of the bike and ultimately got people excited to see something simply sitting there(looking awesome).
