This CNN piece aired July 4-10, 1988, and shows my Winnebiko II bicycle. At the time, I had completed about 16,000 miles around the US, and was about to begin work on the final version (BEHEMOTH), which was to take 3 years. The latest addition to the bike was an Oki cellular phone… high tech at the time. See microship.com for more on this and related projects.
This video is the first of a large pile of old VHS dubs that I will be converting and posting on YouTube. The bike is now in the Computer History Museum, and I am doing similar things with a sailboat.
