Hey Burner Fam,  

It's about that time as we gear up for another journey to Burning Man!  Bringing big art to Burning Man is Expensive and the only way we are able to afford to bring our gift to you at Black Rock City is by somehow raising enough funds to offset our costs.  We also know it's expensive for you as well. So a few years back we thought why not offer up a perk that would be a WIN, WIN, WIN situation for everyone!! Having a quality Bike at Black Rock City is essential to your Burning Man Experience. So we decided to offer quality pre-owned and a limited number of new Beach Cruisers as Funding Perks. We win as we are now able to fund our project, you win as you get your own Playa bike as well as the satisfaction knowing that your money went to Big art instead of some commodified business and Burning Man wins as we welcome bikes as a donation at the end of the event lessening the amount of leftover abandoned bikes.

 Every year we spend about 5 months getting XUZA ready for the journey to and from Black Rock City.   The last thing we want is a mechanical break down during our  adventures.  So we go through the entire mechanics of the rig and replace anything that even looks remotely warn. We also pay meticulous attention to  XUZA's 50' Transport Trailer. Last year we replaced all the brakes on the trailer, we should be good this year, however the tires, six in total,  will need to be replaced.

We're keeping the same budget as we had the past five years and looking to raise $10,000.

It's hard to believe that this will be XUZA's 7th year at Burning Man!
What was once just a playa dream has manifested into something truly amazing. 

Every year XUZA needs a new coat of UV Reactive White Paint, this is what makes XUZA Come Alive at night. Sadly the UV properties only last a few months at best.  This year she will need 5-6 gallons of paint @ $195.00 per gallon, and worth every drop! We will also creating some new facade pieces and you can bet we'll be adding new improve lighting.
After four years, the Playa finally took its toll on XUZA's Generators.  This year we are looking at purchasing a new dual fuel generator.  One that runs on both gasoline and Propane.  The idea of using clean energy is something we've been looking at for a while and this year 2020 it's time! 

 Every year we XUZA shows up looking even better then the year before.   
You can see her growth over the years below .. well this year is no different.  I don't want to ruin the surprise, just wait. :-)
