Model Racing Bicycle made from Upcycled Cans
This delicate model of a Racing bike is made using drinks and other cans. The pieces to construct the bicycle are carefully cut from flattened waste tin cans, with pieces of coloured wire to represent the brake cables. The wheels rotate and there is a wire 'stand' which means it can be displayed upright
The Racing Bicycle is recycled tin can models from Madagascar by Bezalila. Bezalila was formed in 1994 as a co-operative for workshops making Malagasy handicrafts. Bezalila has 18 workshops providing Fair Trade employment to formerly impoverished artisans in crafts such as weaving, woodwork,bone carving and modelling recycled tin cans, called 'Kapoaka' in Madagascar.
