  • Mhm uh, e o e o u nu e.

  • It's a common Chiana.

  • So you know, I'm more come then.

  • Hockey serrated listening.

  • Okay, You need Cheech and, uh, you know, right?

  • And so you don't need a sodium off.

  • She that she way?

  • Thank you.

  • Way they don't don't for Mexico's no.

  • So no say, who started a That's a means of a good, you know, she got through or community that, Uh, thank you.

  • How you gonna need calculate boats?

  • Could stand this.

  • Get more mhm for that.

  • You know, a Carlos.

  • You know, my name is getting more cardio.

  • A stadio got American graffiti.

  • Sona told you, uh, you know, a lot of this so called targets America is in Amman.

  • Tomato sauce, the hot lunch, the telephoto mystery.

  • You can call you study.

  • Don't Americans know through my bythe You're a Californian?

  • Isn't Mexico Canastota but she Tokyo uh, Amita Booth or my last name?

  • Don't writhe wheels come off baby loaded bicycles.

  • It's a special everything special frame, special wheels, a special pain.

  • Everything is special.

  • The bicycles we make make with love because it's with our hands.

  • You know those bikes Snoop and countless other rappers rode around in, You know, the ones that use that West Coast style lowrider bikes low to the ground, chromed out, gold plated.

  • They're an extension of lowrider car culture, and they all started here.

  • I am the Godfather off the lowered bicycles.

  • When I was 10 years old, I used to fix all the vice of the neighbors, always dreamed with a motorcycle and a car.

  • But since I was too small and no money, so I put my mind and bicycles a mainstay in Compton in West Coast culture, thes iconic bikes were actually first created in Mexico.

  • I brought the low rider tow California in early eighties, and soon after locals took notice of the shiny swaggy rides hanging in his shop.

  • When I start making bikes and put it in this play.

  • People come and say, Can you make me one of those?

  • And then they spread.

  • And now we have customers from all over the world.

  • This'll is one of manage creations right here.

  • Almost practically put everything on here blew my mind When when you put it on there for me, it's, uh, completely different in the regular bike and the way they look and the way they drive.

  • It's art.

  • People dream and we make the dream come true.

  • The wheel Ah, perfect function invented in the Stone Age.

  • To this day, the wheel provides the same function as it did those thousands of years ago.

  • But one man is flipping everything we knew about the wheel on its head.

  • My name is Michael Berta.

  • I'm not an engineer, but I did what most engineers, which they could when I was a little kid.

  • I like to take things apart and see what they're made out of.

  • E tried to make something new out of them, and I still like doing it to this day in 2012 I was running an HR company and I turned on the movie Tron.

  • I was drinking a coffee.

  • I thought those were very cool motorcycles in the movie.

  • They're called light cycles and they have these hollow wheels.

  • And I remember thinking, Well, I'm not an engineer, but couldn't we do something useful with that empty space?

  • I imagine you could put things in the wheel that lived outside of it with an electric wheel, for example, the motor and the battery.

  • A wheel of power itself is a much more universal wheel than a wheel that needs something else to power it, make it super compact, super efficient.

  • And that's really what inspired pretty much everyone said it was impossible.

  • They said that if it could be done, it would have been done already by a real engineer.

  • So I ignored them.

  • Then I quit my job and then I met Dakota.

  • Decker will end up leaving Space six to build the wheel together with Dakota, and I spent about two years before we came to the version that we put up for retail.

  • It's a much more compact design, takes up the same space as a regular wheel, but it's got everything in it.

  • The entire powertrain, the battery, the motor, the computer.

  • This wheel is extremely environmentally friendly.

  • It's electric power and it's a very efficient use way.

  • Have made thousands of bicycles into affordable electric vehicles all over the world way.

  • See that we can contribute to the future of transportation with the geo orbital well way see vehicles that nobody has ever made before being able to be made.

  • Now imagine a car.

  • Imagine the possibilities when you take all the guts out of a car because you just don't need them anymore.

  • The opportunities really are endless on Mexico City cars air everywhere over 3.5 million, to be exact.

  • And it's not exactly great for the environment, but fear not, because there is a solution that could change all of that.

  • And that solution is a Volkswagen Beetle, a welcome toe Alto red aumento automotriz, a mechanical workshop that specializes in transforming old gas fueled cars into electric cars.

  • The annual emos initiated a project oh, sentences most convertido those the automobiles, the different tipos electrical Damien knows very close attention in circulation.

  • Mazzanti, Wasmosy's Cinquanta travel continue.

  • Alvarado Dela Paz is the engineer behind the car conversion.

  • And then there's Hector.

  • My name is Hector Risk, and I'm a computer scientist Hector is responsible for gathering the electrical parts and making sure they work right.

  • Yeah, I do the purchasing, the extensive testing of the components.

  • If we have to burn something, I'm the guy in order to learn how to do electric car conversion.

  • You don't need any specific degree is something very simple.

  • After reading a lot of books and taking training courses, I believe anyone can do it.

  • Hector and Alvaro learned that converting older cars is both cost effective and safer for the environment at Amazon, illustrating the majority in Texas.

  • Okay, not a mentor and mass anti ways.

  • Meno.

  • Sufficiently consumer mass gasoline.

  • Uh, condominium.

  • As by removing all the parts related to fuel combustion, they can install the electrical components to have a fully functional electric car with zero emission seen associate animal.

  • El Mohtar Selected Co la computadora Controladora develop.

  • See that bacterias?

  • Miss Mass.

  • El Salvador, The bacteria's It's a Zola's principalists.

  • Elementos is a connector.

  • Travis Cowley's This car makes me free is like the neuron A off the cars.

  • You are free from gas stations.

  • You are free from the check up every six months.

  • Reusability something that the general public has toe take into account in order to be pollution free.

  • If we want to have ah, better world for our Children or grandchildren or future generations, we have to be part of the solution.

  • So I believe the best way to start something important for the world at large is to do this kind of project mhm.

If you're willing to get your hands dirty, it's possible to build your ultimate dream riot from stylish and powerful thio Eco friendly Let these d I Y masters take the wheel and watch them make their dream riots come true The oh So what is the o station That Let's run todo a so sick today But she makes it on the radio.
