Switzerland Art & Wheels

swiss2015_1019
I attended an event called Art and Wheels located in the town of Basel in Switzerland.
It was the first time this event was held.
The bikes on display were all invited by the event promoters and exhibited together with the art. The event had a very “at Home” feeling to it.

This crate is from the French Army and was said to have a complete flathead motor inside.
The hook on the top is used for parachute latches and such.

Going through the countryside, up a mountain road, we came to “Andy’s Tiki Bar” restaurant.
A Swiss Tiki for some reason has a nice ring to it.
