Building an improvised catapult from a recycled bicycle

I left the last Halloween celebration feeling inspired, and got the idea that I wanted to build a catapult to shoot flaming projectiles into a cardboard castle doused in gasoline. My friend Nate is a bike messenger and can build anything out of anything, so I went to his house and mentioned it. He built one in a half hour completely out of shit in his room. Materials used: an old bike, curtain rods and duct tape. Hopefully Nate can make it out to the next Celebration, but he says if not, I can bring the catapult with me. It works amazing and I can’t wait to see it in action in an open area!

Old bike parts will soon be a catapult with flaming projectiles
