Bicycle Taxidermy - Class Insecta "Gargantua" (sp. unknown)
Well...you can imagine the confusion on the faces of the Freelander Bicycle Biologists when they discovered this carcass amidst a herd of bovines. Although it has a reduced thorax and abdomen, the six appendages clearly suggest Insecta. This classification certainly fits this one of a kind taxidermy with its large bulging eyes and six appendages. It's size is somewhat of an anomaly and was given the working name Gargantua. It may have evolved to prey upon bovines. Else it was exposed to the same radioactive energy that created Spiderman! Research is ongoing.
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.
