The Nemesis Skate Cycle is a Badass Piece of Charitable Art

The Nemesis Skate Cycle is a steampunk version of the FreeRider Skate Cycle from Brooklyn Workshop. The Nemesis was created by steampunk artist Doktor A, and has the unusual distinction of being a functional piece of steampunk art.

The Nemesis Skate Cycle was created for Brooklyn Workshop's upcoming art gallery, with proceeds from the event going towards Japanese tsunami/earthquake relief. The Nemesis been given the complete steampunk treatment, with a rust-colored paint job replacing the Skate Cycle's default white one and two spikes added to the top of each wheel. Earlier, I described the Nemesis Skate Cycle as functional, but I would like to retract that statement as I have just now realized the consequences of falling from the Nemesis and landing on its front wheel. Probably better to keep this one off the streets and in the gallery. Stats for Spiked Spectacle Cycles Trending: Older & Chilly
