THIS INSTRUCTABLE IS NOT TO BE COPIED, PLEASE .
IT IS FOR FUN(?)VALUE ONLY... FOR YAHWEH'S SAKE DON'T BE A MORON AND ACTUALLY DO IT. THANK YOU.

Step 1: Get Your Tools and Bits Together.

Well, I was making this up as I went along... so I only actually needed;
Tin snips
Duck tape


A paper bag
3 Tea lights
Some sand
2 jars
Barbeque felt or firelighters or cloth
Wire mesh
Petrol, paraffin, kerosene, lighter fluid.

Step 2: HEADLIGHTS, QUICKLY NOW.

I Gaffer taped two jars to the handlebars and put in a handful of sand and a Tealight candle.

Step 3: TAIL-LIGHT/ BACKLIGHT.

A backlight is needed as well if I'm to keep everything all nice and legal.
I taped a paper bag to my rack, threw in some sand and a Tealight.

Step 4: PIMP UP THE VOLUME.

On the original firewheel I used half a felt cube.
For this pimped up instructable I'm going to up to three on your bottom.

So,I put barbeque-felt in some mesh, wrapped it like a sweetie and bent it around opposing spokes so that it sat inside the wheel.

Step 5: WAITING FOR DARKNESS AND a STUPID FRIEND TO RIDE IT.

Highly trained chickens give the bike a last minute check over before the darkness comes.

Step 6: THE DARKSIDE.

OKAY...here it is.

    Jee-sus lay off that caps lock, people might take you seriously... I have a few similar ideas to put in to practice with this kind of stuff, also did a flaming skateboard ride down a main road on a friday night, past several clubs, tied to a bike no less...

    That looks like great fun. Probably the biggest danger/risk is setting your tires on fire when you stop. Solution: KEEP RIDING! :)

    haha, read the caps with a yell. videolink!!

    You are going to... Dry out your chain Melt your tires Evaporate brake fluid (if they are disk brakes) Melt brake pads (if other brake system) Warp spokes Get five stars from me
