Recently the Pella Chamber of Commerce approached Precision Pulley and Idler about creating a windmill themed sculpture to commemorate RAGBRAI’s visit to the Tulip City. The Chamber provided old bikes that were collected from local donations, and let PPI do the rest. The two men assigned to the project were Marty De Jong and Fred Van Den Broek who used the various parts to create the work of art that is now located on the Tulip Toren for all the visiting cyclists, and residents to see. The two creators added their own story to the piece which you can find attached to the windmill.
