Auction: SRAM pART Project

Jun 20, 2012
by Karl Burkat  
The SRAM pART Project concept is simple: each selected artist recieves 100 high-performance SRAM bike components. Artists then sculpt, mold, paint, create, and destroy to their hearts content. The resulting art is auctioned off to the highest bidder with all proceeds going to World Bicycle Relief. The first pART project auction in November, 2011 proved to be a huge success, raising nearly $100,000. June 2012 marks the return of the popular bike-art auction with SRAM pART Project – Velo Village.

 1,000 dollar reserve bid? Awesome art but I think you've got the wrong forum. Everyone here just sees 1,000 dollars worth of new parts. Im just thinkin of that new Saint lineup... *sigh*

 I hear you lol If you look at some of the other sculptures, some of them use like 5 sram parts and it says they each get 100, so its possible some have done as you said Razz

 That eagle sculpture is a monster. I actually have to have it, its either that, or a 1970s turbo alternator control panel (from a power station) that will be the centre of my front room. Someone FFS bid more than I can afford for it. arahrhgghghghghg
