Bike art? The beginnings of a set of trophies I'm making.

I moved and found the hunting and filet knives I made in the late 1970s. I used to live near two bike shops and I did a lot of dumpster diving. The handles are made out of old square taper alloy bike cranks that were tossed. I used the slotted nuts from chainrings on the cranks to hold the handles onto the tang.

Here's my homage to the Bull

Looks like something from District 9 to me...
Bike parts and Sharpie.

every one loves a bull, I have done several Picasso's. I just had one sitting on the bench and now I can't find it

My favorite of the bunch. That seat turtle is awesome!!! Living at the beach it strikes a chord with me

I used spoke nipples to keep the "feathers" separate and just hung old cables through the chain. Then I crimped them and used motorcycle ones to crimp the ends
