Also quite impressive is that the bike was built completely off the grid. Hadar shaped the carbon steel tubing used in this functional work of art by hand. Additionally, all electric tools used in production were powered with solar energy from the studio's solar rooftop array. The challenge of creating the trike using only sustainable energy seems a natural path for Hadar, whose early works used reclaimed building materials and discarded bicycles found in the streets of New York.
