Yaysayers Bus Update

Why are you looking at a toilet?  Well, that’s the toilet that will take L.A.’s version of the Velorucion to other cities.  In July I wrote about the effort to convert a gutted city bus into a touring bus to take large groups of LA cyclists to other cities.  That is a shot of the nearly completed bathroom in the bus.

Since July the group has successfully organized as Yaysayers LLC.  While rida Ms. Stephanie squared that away, Dan Burton of SMASH Architecture has been working to frame up and seal a bathroom for the bus.  The Bus has yet to be named, but when it is, I gurantee it will change the definition of whatever words comprise it’s name.  If it is called Leviathan, then Leviathan will come to mean horde of smelly joyous bikers.

When will the Yaysayers Bus be ready?  We don’t know yet, but you can bet when it is you will be among the first to know.

Here’s some more pics (Flickr set) I took when I’ve assisted Dan with construction on the bus recently:

  1. I think Yaysayers Bus-20080811-DSC_3414 captures Dan smile the best. That picture feels very real.

  2. D(ad),

    You mean 3413? Dan is a Texan, as are all the members of SMASH Architecture. Can you tell?
