For many years I created all kinds of stuff from bicycle tires. When instructable member shizy25 studied my website she immediately replied: "please write an instructable on that, especially the biker. So here it is.
Check out all the pictures in this instructable if you are interested, and if you haven't seen enough see www.ruudvankoningsbrugge.nl
All original pieces were put together on a sewing machine. But for these models a stapler will do.
If you want to try the sewing machine you will need upper and under transport, more tension on the thread and no leather needle ( cuts slits) but an all purpose ( no.100) one.
Step 1: what's needed?
Old bicycle tyres, preferably different kinds and sizes.
some iron wire (2-2,5 mm approx.)
A pair of scissors
Some pliers for the iron wire
A stapler ( best is a pliers one, not this table model)
On the second photo the basic plan for a human out of bicycle tire.
for the bicycle : soldering gear
