This is our prototype cargobike we called the "Nachomobile"
We were young engineering students back in 2008 and this is how we had fun!
This is how our design was inspired, constructed and refined.
Step 1 - Idea, Design, Fabricate
The "Nachomobile?" It is a goofy 3 wheeler inspired by the similar bike in the film "Nacho Libre." One weekend in Charleston, SC after watching Nacho Libre and drinking many beers, we decided that boredom is for the lame and we decided to build the 3 wheeler that Nacho uses. The next morning I went all over town collecting parts, tools, barbecue stuff and more beer. This started as a goofy joke, but it became a serious project. We did get the idea from the movie but this was not copied, general lines were just eyeballed, built to my own unique style and design. Ours is faster than the movie bike also. This video shows our build weekend and the birth of a legend, the famous Nachomobile. "patent pending"
Refined models are for sale -
See the "Cargo Bike / Nachomobile" page to see the refined models
Like with anything else call or e-mail and it will be built for you.
Step 2 - Test, Upgrade, Improve
In this video (the next weekend) we break in and upgrade The Nacho so that it will be solid and street worthy.
Step 3 - Seasoned / Optimized
