Concept CC Bike Wheel

The final prototype of my Concept Bike wheel which I will present to my peers and lecturers on Friday the 25th of January. I will post explaining its function later but this image is to primarily show the prototyping and my abilities. The rim was sourced from ebay as a standard 16″x1.75 steel bike wheel, the 2mm sheet steel bracket shapes have been fabricated by gas welding together 3 shapes, and the brackets are welded to the rim using MIG welding. The weld beads were then filled with P38 body filler and sanded, primed and sprayed with white refridgerator enamel based aerosol. The central Blue fan shape is a blue foam composite which has been laser cut and shaped by hand, then coated with emulsion, filler primer, and aerosol.
