Some of the bicycles seen here died of natural causes, some had to be put down, and others were shot to fulfill a primal decor imperative (think “Man-Cave”). Since a bicycle cannot be stuffed, mounting the head (seat) and horns (bars) seems to be a fitting tribute to such a loyal companion. Many, as you can see, have a resemblance to their wild cousins, the ram, pronghorn, long-horn and water buffalo, and have been so named. These animals continue to serve their human owners by showing off their owners great taste in decorating!
Being in the bicycle restoration business there is no shortage of surplus parts. Bicycle taxidermy is a cool way to keep parts out of the landfill while showing off your paleo-bicycle coolness. A wonderful conversation piece that also speaks to your bicycling addiction and environmental consciousness.
Each is mounted on a 5/8” thick solid native hardwood (birch/maple) plaque, which has been stained and sealed. All mounting hardware is new or has been recycled from seat clamp parts.
No WORKING BICYCLES have been harmed in the creation of these mounts :)
