Bike instrument will take over the solo

Here’s an oldie, the “Bikelophone System” from 1995 is a slide instrument consisting of magnetic pickups attached to the body of a bicycle so that anything connected to or effecting the bike is amplified. Objects wired up included bass strings, scrap wood, metal bowls, and a tone generator which apparently created some “cacophonic terror”. Still, a pretty cool build on this instrument which looks like it might be perfect for a solo.
