Bicycle Taxidermy is an eccentric project by UK based designer Regan Appleton. The idea first came as an attempt to immortalize his father’s old bikes that could no longer serve their purpose. “A somewhat sentimental take on a mass produced object becoming defunct, the handlebars are given the care and craft of a preserved family pet, – designer explains. – The bikes have now been re-appropriated as a family heirloom.” You have a choice of buying just a plaque (with your own epitaph text, engraved on a stainless steel plate) and mount parts of your departed bike on it. Or you can buy a plaque with the newly sources handlebars already attached. Very cool. The pieces can also be used to hang coats, bags, umbrellas and other items.
