rat trike

Standard

The things you see when your missus bribes you with a coffee stop for a luscious milky cappucino at your old friend Bobby’s Cafe on the way to do the grocery shopping… Given the location at downtown Darlington (close to Sydney University, NSW Australia). I’m thinking this rat trike was a summer break project born of too much time & too many beers: an old kid’s trike body duct-taped to an engine & battery pack, supplemented with go-cart wheels packed into PVC pipe for better drifting, which after he cruised up the footpath into Bobby’s for a coffee, is exactly what the owner did – drifted & slid with quite an air of expertise long born of practice, all the way down the Ivy Street hill and motored back up again for more.

About EllaDee's daleleelife101.blog

After a decade of living in tiny apartments in the inner-city of Sydney, Australia with my husband referred to in my posts as the Gorgeous One (G.O.) while I worked in corporate-legal and the G.O. in civil earthworks we relocated 500 kilometres north in December 2015 to our home in the Nambucca Valley to follow our dream of living simply and creatively. We travelled around Australia in 2016. Now we work on our 1930’s house, have a vegetable garden and a dog plus share a flock of backyard chickens with our neighbour. These days I’m a Horticulture student, something I dreamed of doing for many years. I write about day-to-day life, past & present, people & places, and take snapshots with my smart phone.
