Just because something gets scrapped, doesn’t mean it’s totally useless. The 100 Hoopties project is a series of posters released over 100 days that re-imagines famous pop culture characters using mostly scrap bike parts.
In order to qualify as a “hooptie” each bicycle must have “at least one part dangling off that has duct tape holding it together and/or makes you aware of its impending arrival by the volume of the squeal coming from the petrified brake pads or lack there of,” according to the organizer Jennifer Beatty better known as “graphikdeziner.”
Beatty created the 100 Hoopties project to try to chain-link her passions for pop culture, graphic design and cycling subculture into one. Check out some of the best submissions below:
Behind the American Dream
Alice in Chains
Detroit Red Wings
René Magritte – Son of Man
