Bicyle Lamp by artist William Rudolph
Lamp made of Bicycle Parts: ReUsing at it’s BEST!
The base is made of a Japanese 10 Speed Sprocket with Legs which are uncut crank pins and a piece of gold coloued chain. The bottom hub is a Rolex made in India. The centre hub is a 3 speed torpedo made in Germany. The other hub is a made in China. The on/off lever is an MX brand Brake Lever. (very satisfying to turn on and off!
The shade is made of 2 strong-light sprockets made in France and a smaller BMX sprocket join to the larger with 5 chain ring bolts and a front hub race in the centre. The hold down ring for the shade is a part of a shifter that holds it to the handle bar. 15 spokes threaded on both ends and spoke nipples. The white weave is handlebar tape from the 1970’s cut in half and weaved through the upright spokes, then more gold coloured bicycle chain.
