For most of us, getting a new bike means picking up all kinds of accessories like helmets, lights, bottle holders and the like. For German artist / designer / maker Laura Kampf, getting a new bike meant turning a beer keg into a sidecar. Yes, you read that correctly. Laura Kampf took a beer keg (we hope the beer that was poured down the drain was skunked), raw materials, connectors, a wheel and her ridiculous amounts of ingenious engineering experience and turned it into a functional sidecar that’s purpose built to hold her tools for smaller jobs. This DIY project is filled with so many cool little features that are worth pointing out. Her use of diamond plate as the lid of the container and a shelf for a toolbox. The unique suspension she made out connectors. The absurdly precise welds that we’ll never be able to emulate. The only thing this entire project is missing is a picture of her dog with an aviator style hat and goggles riding in it, but we imagine that will be popping up on Instagram soon.
