Bovidae sp. (ox) - SOLD!

$59.00

The taxonomy of this species is unknown. It was discovered (posthumously) along a fence near a farm. From what remains the animal looks to have been a domestic cattle species. The nose-ring and shape of the head suggest it may have been an ox used for ploughing. The shape of the horns is unique for domestic cattle and therefore the exact breed is not discernible from the skull. These remains...remain a mystery!

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.
