Pictures from the Coroplast Fender Party

Saturday night we hosted a coroplast fender making party at Bike Works. Using the basic instructions that I've posted here, Matt Newlin made a really nice set of fenders for his Bianchi.

Jimmy Livengood couldn't make it to the party, but he'd dropped off some biggish sheets of scrap coroplast earlier this week. Jimmy works at a tradeshow/exhibit booth design and construction house and thus has access to some leftover coroplast pieces that are bigger than the scrounged campaign signs. I cut up some of a big piece of black coroplast to make a nice front fender for my Kona Explosif.

Davey made a ukulele case.

Jayanthi made a rear basket for her Miyata, while Mark made fenders.

Melanie made a couple of drawer organizers.

As the saying goes, a good time was had by all. We still have a lot of signs and zipties at Bike Works and I'll be doing a couple of more coroplast parties later this month with the folks from The Bikery and Sustainable Ballard.
