Bicycle Taxidermy - Bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis) - SOLD!
Native to the Western Provinces, this specimen made its way East and was unable to adapt to the wet salty environment and ultimately succumbed to one of our most devastating parasites (Rust). We were able to save the head and horns and create this awesome tribute to a Canadian icon. An excellent display for an unassuming velo collector with a taste for the unique character of our bicycling culture.
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.
