Cow Town Cyclery
This was a real challenge because I was not familiar with bicycle shops. I did a lot of research and came up with this design.
Front of Cow Town Cyclery, a place where bicycles are sold and serviced.
Closer view of front of shop.
Sales counter with repair manuals and parts. Magazine rack is on the wall.
Repair area behind sales counter.
Left corner of shop with spare tubes and wheels and pegboard with tools.
Left side of shop with bicycle on stand being worked on, and overview of work bench and tools.
Overview of entire work area.
Right side of shop with shelves for helmets and books.
I started this project with an unfinished shop shell I had assembled earlier.
The exterior painted black.
Brick laid on sidewalk and sides of building.
Bricks being mortared and sealed with watered down glue.
Bricks finished on both sides of shop.
A strip of LED lights is attached to the inside top front of the box, and the power cord is run down an inside corner along the side of a window, and out through a hole in the floor. It is then run across the bottom of the shop, and out the back.
The cord for the LED lights emerging from the bottom back, with the inline switch and built in transformer to power them.
Inside objects assembled.
A 1:12 scale Mercedes-Benz bicycle. This scale was very difficult to find.
A BMW bicycle in the right scale.
Preliminary placement of shop contents, and possible posters and charts laid out.
A view from the top with bicycles hanging off a pole on the right, and most objects in place.
A finished view of the hanging bicycles and the sales shelves on the right side of the shop. Posters are glued in place.
Overview of the finished service area of the shop.
Perfect logo for Cow Town Cyclery.
Done, all that was left was a poster for the green billboard on the sidewalk.
A customer’s bike parked on the sidewalk while she shops.
