Technical data of the Chopper
The GOBBLE-CHOPPER is a very-long-forked chopper made from two bicycle frames and miscellaneous other parts. It features an auxiliary refreshment unit, which can be quickly connected to the chopper, thereby also greatly increasing the stability of the compound vehicle.
Overall colour of the vehicle is non-glare black, but the front fork and the metal framework on the ARU are done with cheap silver paint (known as gypsy-chrome in Finland).

Auxiliary refreshment unit (aka Blackie) technical data:
The auxiliary refreshment unit (ARU) is attached with a standard farm-tractorÂ´s power outlet (See picture to the left). The quick release mecanism enables very rapid connections and disconnections of the ARU. It is welded to a rod, which is supported with two support rods, and connected with the Â´Qwistis-weldless-methodÂ´. The Box itself is constructed of 50x50x5mm angle bars and plywood. The metal parts are painted with gypsy chrome and the plywood with non gloss black in the same stile as the Gobble chopper.
The ARU is equipped with a battery-powered Solid-state cooling device, which will keep the refreshments inside cool for more than 24 hours on a single charge cycle.
