Bos Taurus Alba (Albino Longhorn cattle) - SOLD!
This specimen is a rare find amongst bicycle taxidermists. Long horned bicycles are often found in more rural regions along trails and wooded areas and haven't been completely domesticated. What makes this specimen especially sought after is that it is an Albino! Lacking any sign of pigment, this individual was difficult to spot in the snow. The only colour markings include a black logo branding in the nose leather from the NORCO ranch from which it must have escaped. The breeders also embossed the entire anterior surface of the head with the ranch name.
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.
